An investigation is under way following an armed robbery at a popular cafe in Glasgow's south side.

A man entered Moyra Jane's, Kildrostan Street, Pollokshields, at about 20:55 on Thursday and threatened four members of staff with a knife.

He then made off with an as yet unknown sum of cash in the direction of Shields Road. No-one was injured.

The suspect is described as white, in his 20s, 5ft 8in tall and of medium build. He was wearing black clothing.

There were no customers in the shop at the time of the robbery. The two men and two women who were working there were left "extremely shaken".

Police urged anyone who may have witnessed the man acting suspiciously in the area before the robbery, or who has any information, to contact them.
