Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Linthaugh Road, Glasgow yesterday, (Wednesday, March 15).

Around 6am a 30-year-old man was walking along Linthaugh Road towards Mosspark Railway Station on his way to work, when he was stopped by a male at the start of the footbridge.

He was then pushed to the ground and robbed of his wallet before his attacker ran off in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as white, in his 30s, 6ft2, of slim build and with a gaunt appearance. He was wearing a black hooded top with the hood up and a scarf across his face, navy tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. He also spoke with a Glasgow accent.

Detective Inspector Alasdair Barlow from the Community Investigation Unit based at Govan said: “Luckily the victim was not injured during this incident but it was nonetheless a frightening experience for him and it is crucial that we trace the person responsible.

“There would have been members of the public in the area at the time, possibly making their way to the train station. I would ask anyone who witnessed what happened or saw a man matching the above description in the area to please get in touch.

“Anyone with information can contact officers at the Community Investigation Unit based at Govan via 101. Alternatively you can call CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
