Detective constable Michael Allison, of Pollok robbery unit, said: “Thankfully neither the lady or her grandson were injured but it was very distressing for her.

“Two women in a small black car witnessed this incident and attempted to give chase.

“It is crucial we trace and speak to them and would ask they get in contact with me as they may have information that will assist us with our enquiries”.

The suspect is described as male, approximately 6 foot in height and of slim build.

He was wearing a grey top with the hood up and tightly pulled around his face.

Those with information should contact 532 5600.

Meanwhile, police are still hunting a racist attacker who shot a man in Queen’s Park.

The suspect verbally abused a dog walker then shot him with an air rifle on Sunday, July 10.

The victim was walking his Jack Russell at 1pm in the area of the park overlooking Victoria Road when he was attacked.

The suspect is described as a thin, Asian male in his mid 20s was wearing a black polo shirt and black three-quarter length trousers.The 20-year-old victim was treated for injuries to his arm and leg at Victoria Infirmary. He has since been released from hospital.

Detective Constable Barry Hughes, of Gorbals CID, said: “This appears to have been a totally unprovoked attack on a young man who was enjoying a walk in the park with his dog.

“The park was very busy at this time of day and I’d like to speak to anyone who may have seen the suspect hanging about prior to this incident taking place or running off afterwards.

“It is believed the suspect shouted some verbal abuse at the injured man prior to discharging the weapon and as such police are treating this incident as racially motivated”.
