Police have released images of a man they want to trace over an assault with an attempt to rob in Glasgow.

A 26-year-old woman was threatened by a man who demanded her personal property in Hope Street at about 21:30 on 30 May.

Officers said they believed the man in the image could help them with their investigation.

The man is white, 20-30 years old, of slim build, about 5ft 10in in height and with short brown hair.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a light blue T-shirt with white stripes, similar to an Argentina football top, dark blue combat shorts, dark trainers and dark glasses on the top of his head.

Det Sgt Raymond Hunter said: "Although physically unharmed, the woman was left in a real state of fear and alarm.

"No-one should have to encounter behaviour like this in our community. I would ask anyone with information relating to this incident to contact police via 101."
