Detectives are appealing for information after a group of men were seen behaving suspiciously in the south side of Glasgow yesterday morning (Tuesday 16 April).

Around 10.05am police received several reports of four men, getting out of a red transit van wearing white decorating suits and white face masks, seen running away from the top end of Victoria Road, near to Queens Park.

They ran into Queens Park Lane where a number of items were discarded.

Their behaviour concerned a number of members of the public who called the police.

Detective Inspector Lynsey Watters from Cathcart CID said: “We are currently investigating this incident and trying to establish why these men were in Victoria Road, and whether they had been intending to commit a crime.

“The area would have been busy with people at the time and we are appealing to anyone who noticed men matching the above descriptions running away, or anything at all suspicious, to get in touch.

“We would also urge motorists with dashcams who were nearby to check their footage in case they have captured the men, or possibly a red transit van.

“Additional patrols will be in the area to provide reassurance and any members of the public with concerns are welcome to approach the officers who will be happy to assist.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cathcart CID via 101, quoting incident number 0903 of Tuesday 16 April 2019. Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.
