Elderly woman driver held at knifepoint in car
An 82-year-old woman was held at knifepoint by a man who jumped into her car and demanded cash.
The pensioner was targeted in Knightswood, Glasgow, as she got into her Peugeot to travel to an appointment yesterday morning.
The would-be thief fled after she drove towards some workmen nearby and rolled down her window to raise the alarm.
Police are hunting for the man, who struck at around 8.40am in Athelstane Road.
Detective Constable Mark Milroy said: “This was a terrifying experience for the elderly woman and thankfully she was able to seek help quickly.”
