Woman robbed by Glasgow cash machine gang

Police are hunting several suspects after a woman was attacked and robbed at a cash machine in Glasgow.

The victim, 36, was entering her Pin number at a machine in Victoria Road when she was grabbed from behind by a man who pushed her to the ground.

She was then restrained by a group of about four men and one woman, but managed to break free.

By then, the man had taken a three-figure sum of money from her account, and the group fled the scene.

'Extremely shaken'

Strathclyde Police said the suspects were last seen running along Victoria Road and into Allison Street at about 2200 GMT on Friday.

Pc Stephen McGrath said: "Fortunately the 36-year-old woman was not injured, however she was left extremely shaken as a result of the incident and it is vital that we trace the people responsible."

One male suspect was described as an Asian man in his early 20s, of slim build with a thin face and long nose. He had a goatee-style beard and was wearing dark coloured clothing.

The female suspect was described as in her early 20s, with pale skin, a rounded face and auburn-coloured hair cut in a bob style. She was wearing light coloured clothing.

There is no description of the other suspects in the group.
