The victims son-in-law told The Extra: “Luckily a cousin and a nephew came around quite by chance and confronted the gang, chasing them on Rouken Glen Road as they tried to make their getaway. My cousin managed to take some pictures of these scum bags and their car, but according to police the number plate on the Volvo has been cloned.”

Police Scotland confirmed they are aware of the incident and will be issuing a statement in due course.
