Robbery – Duke Street, Glasgow



Police Scotland is appealing for information after a 51-year-old man was robbed outside a bank in Glasgow.

Around 2.30 pm on Friday 4 January 2019, a security guard working for G4S, was delivering money to the Royal Bank of Scotland, Duke Street, Glasgow when he was approached by two men and threatened with weapons. The men then made off with his cash box containing a five figure sum of money.


The suspects made off in a small silver coloured vehicle which was set alight shortly after on Myreside Street, Glasgow.

The 51-year-old security guard was uninjured although left extremely distressed.


The suspects are described as:

1. White male, 5ft8 – 5ft 10, slim build wearing a black hooded top, black jogging trousers and a scarf covering his face.

2. White male, 5ft 8, slim build wearing dark clothing and a dark hat.


Detective Sergeant Graham McCreadie at the Community Investigation Unit based at Helen Street, Govan said:

“This was a terrifying and dangerous attack which has left a man, who was only doing his job, traumatised. The suspects have then made off with a large sum of money and later set the car they made off in on fire.

“Following enquiries we know that from Myreside Street, they then got into a black coloured 4×4 vehicle.

“Officers are currently carrying out extensive enquiries, however we would ask that anyone who was near to the bank, anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles mentioned or anyone who has dash cam footage from that area to get in touch with police immediately.”
