The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS - LEWIS MCKEN­ZIE

Po­lice are seek­ing two men who made off with a five-fig­ure sum of money af­ter rob­bing a se­cu­rity guard out­side a bank in Glas­gow.

The 57-year-old was at the Cly­des­dale Bank in Shet­tle­ston Road when he was ap­proached by the men at around 6.20pm on Sun­day.

They threat­ened him with a weapon and robbed him of a money cas­sette con­tain­ing the cash be­fore mak­ing off in a blue Ford Fo­cus.

The guard was taken to Glas­gow Royal In­fir­mary with an in­jury to his hand, be­fore be­ing re­leased.

Al­though not se­ri­ously in­jured, he is said to have been left badly shaken.

Of­fi­cers be­lieve that a car which was set on fire at the rear of flats in Bud­hill Av­enue shortly af­ter the in­ci­dent is the ve­hi­cle in­volved in the rob­bery.

One of the sus­pects that de­tec­tives are search­ing for is around 6ft, of a stocky build and was wear­ing a dark green jacket.

The other man is de­scribed as around 5ft 8in, of medium build and wear­ing dark cloth­ing.
