Appeal following housebreaking and assault in Glasgow
Detectives in Glasgow are appealing for information after a four-figure sum of money was stolen during a housebreaking and assault in Easterhouse.
Around 5pm on Thursday, 17 February, a 40-year-old man returned to his home in Croftcroighn Drive to find three men had broken into the property.
The three suspects, on being disturbed, assaulted the male householder before he chased them out of his home.
Emergency services attended and the 40-year-old was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
The three suspects, who are described as wearing dark clothing with their faces covered, made off in a small white vehicle.
Police are carrying out high-visibility patrols in the local area, alongside extensive enquiries to establish who is responsible for this incident.
Detective Sergeant Neil Guy, from Govan CID, said: "This was a particularly distressing incident for the victim and we can only be thankful that he was not seriously injured during the incident.
"We are appealing for any witnesses or local residents with private CCTV or possible dashcam footage to please come forward.
"We are also keen to hear from anyone who believes they may have seen any suspicious vehicles in the local area prior to the incident, in particular a small white vehicle making off at speed.
"Anyone with information which may assist our investigation, no matter how small, is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2374 of 17 February. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous."
