Police are hunting two men who abducted a 24-year-old man in the south side of Glasgow then robbed him at his home.

The man was forced to withdraw cash from an ATM in Albert Road, Govanhill, after getting out of a taxi in nearby Victoria Road at 0245 GMT on Saturday.

He was then made to walk home where his attackers vandalised his house and stole personal items.

Both suspects were described as Asian males. One was in his mid 20s, the other in his late 20s.

The suspect in his mid 20s was wearing red jogging trousers and a white, hooded, track suit top. He kept his hood up throughout the attack.

The second suspect was wearing dark clothing and a black, woolly, beanie hat.

Police said initial investigations had revealed that two male passers-by may have witnessed the incident.

Witness appeal

The first man was described as an Asian man in his late 50s. He was wearing sandy-coloured clothing and was walking up Albert Road.

A white man is also believed to have walked past slightly later. There was no further description of him.

Det Con Natalie Carr, of Strathclyde Police, said: "This was a frightening ordeal for a young man and it's imperative we trace those responsible.

"I am appealing to the two men who were in the area at the time of the incident, I understand they may be frightened and may not wish to come forward and speak to police but I would appeal to them to please get in touch.

"A young man has been left extremely traumatised and frightened and it's imperative we get the people responsible for this incident."
