Thornliebank garage worker robbed at knife point

Police are searching for two men following a robbery at a service station in Thornliebank.

A female member of staff was approached by the pair, in dark clothing with scarves over their faces, while she was opening up the shutters at 0700 BST.

The 38-year-old was threatened with a knife and forced into the Shell garage on Roukenglen Road.

The men then stole money from the till and a quantity of cigarettes, before making off.

Both suspects were white and had local accents.

'Frightening experience'

One of the men was wearing a grey hooded tracksuit with red ties at the hood.

The second man was wearing a black hooded jacket, black trousers and black trainers.

Strathclyde Police's Det Con Stephen McGrath said: "This has been a very frightening experience for the member of staff who was just starting her day.

"These two men have caused her considerable distress and it's important we trace them."

He appealed to anyone with information about the two suspects or the incident to contact them.
