Two security staff have been robbed while delivering money to a bank in Glasgow.

Police are appealing for information into the incident that took place outside the bank on Baillieston Main Street at around 2.10am on Friday.

The staff members were approached by two men who assaulted them before making off with a large sum of money.

The suspects, both described as speaking with Scottish accents, fled the scene in a green Vauxhall Adam car which was recovered a short distance away.

They are then believed to have got into a silver-coloured car and left the area.

One was wearing a grey tracksuit and the other of slimmer build wearing dark-coloured clothing.

Detective Sergeant Graham McCreadie from Govan CID said: “Fortunately the staff members were not injured but have been left understandably shaken by the incident.

“The robbery happened while many would have been asleep but I would ask that anyone who has private CCTV in the area checks their systems for any footage of the incident, the suspects, or the vehicles prior to, or after, the robbery.

“I would also ask that any motorists using Glasgow Road or driving in the Baillieston area overnight check their dash-cam devices for either the Vauxhall Adam or silver vehicle around the premises or around the time of the incident.

“We’re continuing to investigate an incident of a similar nature at a bank on Smithycroft Road on Tuesday, 17 December and are seeking to establish any link between these incidents.”

Those with information should call Police Scotland on 101.
