Police are seeking a man who threatened a woman working at a petrol station before stealing a three-figure sum of money.

The incident took place at around 5.50am on Tuesday, September 6, on Crow Road in Glasgow’s Jordanhill area.

A 52-year-old woman, who was working at the petrol station, was threatened by the man who demanded money.

He is described as being white, in his 50s, of thin build, with a scruffy, short grey beard.

High-visibility police patrols are being carried out in the area and enquiries are ongoing to establish who is responsible.
