Three pub workers have been threatened with a weapon during a Glasgow robbery.

The two robbers, who wore black balaclavas, struck at about 08:00, as one of the employees was working alone at the Old Schoolhouse pub.

They threatened him with a blade and demanded cash. When two more workers arrived, they were also threatened.

All three male employees were tied up before the hooded men escaped from the Woodlands Road pub with a four-figure sum of money.

Police said the first suspect was in his late 30s or early 40s, approximately 6ft tall and of medium build. He was wearing a black jacket and black cargo trousers.

The second man was thought to be in his late 30s, approximately 5ft 8in tall and of stocky build. He wore a green camouflage jacket and jeans.

Det Sgt Bob Bowie of Partick CID said: "Understandably, the staff members have been left extremely shaken as a result of their ordeal. Thankfully, they were not injured.

"We are reviewing CCTV and making extensive local inquiries to try to identify who these two men are."
