Robbery at Shop - Tollcross Road, Glasgow

Published 29 December 2018

Police Scotland officers are appealing for information following a robbery at a shop in Tollcross Road, Glasgow in the early hours of Saturday 29 December 2018.

Around 0015 hrs on 29 December, a 33-year-old man was working within the Tollcross Convenience Store in Tollcross Road, Glasgow when a man came into the shop carrying a carrier bag with an unknown item within. He then pointed this carrier bag at the shop assistant and demanded money from the cash register.

The suspect then ran out of the shop with a three figure sum of cash leaving the shop assistant uninjured but badly shaken.

The suspect is described as white, medium build and had dark stubble on his face. He was wearing a black quilted jacket with a diagonal pattern and hood, a black beanie style hat with a white horizontal stripe, black trousers and black training shoes with a black vertical stripe down the middle.

Detective Sergeant Colin Kilgour at the Community Investigation Unit based at Helen St, Glasgow said:

“Thankfully the shop assistant was not injured however it was a very traumatic experience for him and therefore vital that we trace the person responsible for this robbery as he may strike again.

“It is believed that the suspect was speaking to someone outside Bells Bar just before the incident took place and therefore I’d like to speak to this person or indeed anyone who may have seen the two men talking.

“I’d also like to speak to anyone who may recognise the description of the suspect or anyone who saw him leaving the shop."

Anyone with information should contact the Community Investigation Unit at Helen Street via telephone number 101 quoting incident number 0089 of 29 December 2018. Alternatively calls can be made to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where anonymity can be maintained.
