The police would like to hear from members of the public who have any information about an armed robbery in the early hours of today at a petrol station in Bearsden.

A man entered the BP service station at the Bearsden end of Maryhill Road with a blunt weapon and demanded money from a member of staff at about 6.30am this morning (Tuesday, August 4).

No one was injured during the incident. The man obtained a three-figure sum of money and ran off on foot in the direction of Coronation Way heading south.

The suspect is described as a white local man, medium build, approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket, red trousers and a red and white scarf.

DC Joseph Keith, at the robbery unit of Pollok police office, said: “Thankfully no one was injured during the robbery. However, it was a very frightening experience for the member of staff at the shop.

“Our enquiries are still at quite an early stage. We are analysing CCTV and conducting interviews. I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of the petrol station at the time of incident to contact police with any relevant information.”

If you know anything about the man responsible or you can help with their enquiries, please contact the police at the Pollok Police Office on the non-emergency number 101. Or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you’d like to remain anonymous.
