APPEAL – ROBBERY – IBROX
Police in Glasgow are appealing for information following an assault and robbery in the Ibrox area. The incident happened around 6.15am on Sunday, 19 January, 2020, at a property on Ibrox Terrace.
A 70-year-old woman was within her home when a man entered and threatened the victim with a knife. He stole a quantity of cash, a mobile phone and personal possessions during the attack and left around 9.15am the same day.
The victim did not sustain any injuries, however she was taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital as a precaution.
Enquiries are ongoing to trace the male suspect and local officers are urging anyone with information to come forward.
The suspect is described as white, in his mid-40s, slim build, around 5 ft 10 ins, clean shaven with short black hair. He spoke with a local Glaswegian accent. He was wearing a dark short jacket, dark grey jeans and was carrying a grey shoulder bag.
Constable Siobhan Mckenna, of Greater Glasgow Robbery Unit, said: “Although the woman did not sustain any injuries, it was an extremely frightening and prolonged attack lasting three hours. It was a traumatic experience for her and she is being supported by her family and our officers.
“It is vital that we trace the person responsible. Initial enquiries indicate the man was in the Copland Road area before turning into Ibrox Terrace and entering the woman’s house.
“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and saw a man matching this description around 6.15am this morning, before the attack, or 9.15am, after the attack, to get in touch. I would also be keen to speak to anyone who may have dash-cam footage of the suspect in the area.
