Glasgow News – Police appeal for robbery at Glasgow takeaway




Police Scotland is appealing for information after a robbery took place at a takeaway on Gorstan Street in Glasgow.

Around 10.30 pm on Saturday 16 February 2019 a man walked into Punka Wala and threatened a customer and staff with a knife. He made off with a three figure sum of money.

The suspect is described as white, between 5ft 5 and 5ft 7, of skinny build with a gaunt appearance. He spoke with a local accent and was wearing a dark baseball cap, dark hooded top and dark jogging bottoms.

Police Constable Holly Canning, Helen Street Police Office, said:

“Our officers have been speaking to witnesses, as well as checking CCTV, however would like anyone who has not spoken to Police and may have information about this incident to come forward.

“The customer who was within the takeaway at the time of the incident left before we arrived and has yet to be identified. We would urge them to get in touch.

“There is also a pub nearby, The Black Horse, and people would have been standing outside. Please think back, do you remember seeing anything?”
