A woman has been robbed of her bag after she was pushed to the ground in an early morning attack in Glasgow.

The 23-year-old was approached from behind by a man on a silver bike at around 5.45am on Dumbarton Road near to Duncan Avenue, Scotstoun.

The suspect grabbed her causing her to fall to the ground and then took off with her bag which contained a two-figure sum of money, bank cards and personal items.

Neither woman was injured during the attack, but both were left shaken by the incident.

The attacker is described as being in his late teens/early 20s, slim with dark sallow/brown skin and short dark hair.


He spoke broken English and was wearing a two-tone blue/black hooded top, grey jogging bottoms and black trainers.

Detective sergeant Neil Guy of Govan Police Station said: “From CCTV we see the man approach the first lady then make off on his silver bike along Dumbarton Road where he seems to have an altercation with a man on the street.

“He is then seen riding his bike in the middle of Dumbarton Road, near to Queen Victoria Court, but is challenged by a private hire driver who he rides into the path of.

“I would appeal to either of these men, the man in the street or the private hire driver – who may have dashcam footage – to get in touch with police as soon as possible. Their information may assist in catching this man.”
