Glasgow News 


Police Scotland is appealing for information following a robbery at a newsagents on Garrioch Road, near to Stratford Street this morning.

Around 7.40 am on Tuesday 26 June 2018 a 74 year-old man was within his shop when two men entered, threatened him with a weapon and then made off with cash and goods.


The 74 year-old man was not injured during the incident.


The first man is described as white, 5ft 7 of medium build, had a local accent and a tattoo on his right forearm. He was wearing a dark coloured beanie hat, a grey/ black hooded top, dark coloured jogging bottoms and white trainers.


The second man was around 5ft 9 of medium build and was wearing a blue hooded top, dark coloured jogging bottoms, dark gloves and light grey trainers that had white soles.


Detective Sergeant Graham McCreadie, Govan Police Office, said:


“Although the man was left uninjured, he is extremely shaken by what has happened.


“We are appealing to anyone who was in the area who may have seen two men matching these descriptions to come forward and contact us.

“Garrioch Road would have been busy at that time of the morning as people made their way to work and we would ask you to think back, where you in the area at the time?


“It would be unusual for somebody to be wearing a beanie hat or gloves in this weather. Did anyone stand out to you?”
