A woman was robbed after withdrawing money from an ATM machine.
Police said the victim was not injured but has been left “badly shaken” by the incident in Renfrewshire.
The 57-year-old was in Paisley’s Neilston Road, near the Co-op store, at around 7.20pm on Saturday when she was approached and robbed by a woman.
The suspect, who was described as slim with a gaunt appearance, is believed to be aged between 20 and 30 and is around 5ft 4in.
She was wearing a dark hooded top and a facemask.
Police believe a man spotted in the area is an accomplice.
Also slim to medium build with a gaunt appearance, the man is believed to be aged between 25 and 35.
He was wearing tracksuit trousers and a top.
Both suspects ran off and turned into Stock Street.
Investigating officers are checking nearby CCTV cameras and have appealed for any witnesses to get in touch.
Detective sergeant Martin Clark said: “This is a busy road with lots of traffic, so a number of motorists may have captured footage that could assist our enquiries in locating these two people.
“There would also have been plenty of people out last night with the warm weather and I am asking them to think back and consider if they noticed this man and woman, maybe you noticed them loitering in Neilston Road.
“If you have any information, no matter how small, please do pass it on.”
