Police have returned to the scene of a robbery at the home of a 69-year-old woman in which she was threatened by three masked men.

The men forced their way in to Bilquis Choudry's home in Giffnock, near Glasgow, on Monday 10 April and made off with £4,500 and jewellery.

Police spoke to motorists and residents in Rouken Glen Road one week on.

Writing on Facebook, Fayyaz Rahman said the men had targeted his mother-in-law's home between 17:45 and 18:15.

In his social media post, Mr Rahman urged people to help police identify the men he described as "scumbags" who robbed their victim at knifepoint.

He said a "cousin and a nephew" disturbed the raiders, and managed to take photographs after chasing them along a road.

The pictures showed two people attempting to get into a dark grey Volvo car, with their faces covered.

In an earlier statement, Police Scotland said three masked men had broken into the woman's home at around 17:30 on Monday 10 April.
