He is thought to have joined two other men outside the house before running towards Stockiemuir Road.

It is believed they got into a vehicle which was parked close to a BP petrol station.

Det Insp Jim Biggam said: "Thankfully nobody was harmed, or anything stolen during this incident however the couple have been left extremely fearful and shaken.

"We have been conducting door to door inquiries and checking CCTV within the area in order to trace the suspects involved and are looking for anybody with any further information to come forward and contact us.

"Were you in the area at the time, or perhaps at the nearby petrol station shortly after the incident? Do you remember seeing anything out of the ordinary?"
