An armed robber threatened a member of staff at a Scottish petrol station before making off with a three-figure sum of money.

The man entered the BP station in Milngavie Road, Bearsden, at about 5:30pm on Sunday and threatened the staff member with a weapon.

He was white, about 6ft tall, of slim build and had dark hair. He was wearing a black jacket with a grey hooded top pulled up, grey tracksuit trousers and white trainers.

Police said the petrol station attendant was not injured but was left badly shaken.

Detective sargeant John Aikman said: “We are in the process of gathering and checking CCTV footage from in and around the area but I’m appealing to anyone who may have been in the area at the time to contact us.

“Any information could prove vital in our inquiries to trace the man responsible for this crime.”
