The three men then made off in an unknown direction with a four figure sum of money.

 

The 27 year-old man was uninjured.

 

The first suspect is described as being white, of medium height and build wearing a khaki top, with the hood up, and a scarf around his face.

 

The second suspect was tall, of heavy build and had a black hooded top on.

 

The third suspect was wearing a dark grey hooded top.

 

Detective Inspector Mick Carr, Saltcoats CID, said:

 

“Officers have been making door to door enquiries and checking CCTV in the area to get more detailed descriptions and trace those responsible.

 

“We know that there was a small dark vehicle in the area at the time and we are keen to trace this vehicle and its occupants to establish if they have any information which may be able to assist us.

 

“This happened at a time when people would have been up and about leaving for work. Think back, did you see anything out of place?
