Bank security guard robbed of £50,000 at knifepoint
A 52-year-old G4S worker was threatened and robbed outside a Bank of Scotland in Glasgow.
A security guard was threatened with a knife before being robbed of around £50,000 outside a bank.
The 52-year-old G4S worker was robbed outside a Bank of Scotland in Smithycroft Road in Riddrie, Glasgow.
He was threatened by a man wearing dark clothing and a balaclava before a money cassette he was carrying containing around £50,000 was stolen.
The robber then got into the passenger seat of a dark Audi A4 which fled the scene heading towards Riddrie Knowes.
The car was found burnt out a short time later nearby in Riddrie Crescent.
Sergeant Neil Guy said: "This was a very traumatic experience for the security guard who was just carrying out his daily job.
"Luckily he was not physically injured but nevertheless it has left him very shaken up.
"Enquiries are at an early stage and we are appealing for any information that will help us trace the men responsible for this robbery as soon as possible.
"In particular we would ask any motorists with dash-cams who were in the area around the time of the incident to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance to our enquiries.
"At this time we are not linking this robbery to a similar robberies in the east end of Glasgow recently, however we cannot rule anything out at this early stage."
