Man threatened Scotmid workers after getting in their car
Police are hunting a man who tried to steal money from two women on Christmas Eve.
A man tried to rob two women after he got into the back seat of their car on Christmas Eve.
The women, aged 26 and 31, were targeted after they finished their shift at the Scotmid shop on Riddell Street in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire.
The shop workers made their way to a blue Ford Focus which was parked outside around 10pm.
Before they drove off a man wearing dark clothing, who they did not know, got into the back of the car.
He threatened them and demanded they hand over money and their belongings.
They refused and told him to get out of the car, after which he left the area.
Police are now trying to trace the man responsible.
