THE FAMILY of a security guard attacked with a machete in a Glasgow east end ATM robbery have told of their shock at the horror attack.

Adrian Goodbrand's arm was badly cut as he tackled the man during the £20,000 raid.

Police said two men targeted the 60-year-old at the Santander machine outside The Forge shopping centre in Parkhead on Tuesday.

Evening Times:

The 60-year-old G4S guard was approached from behind and struck on the hand with the machete as his cash box, which contained over £20,000, was stolen.

His wife, Mary, 61, from Wishaw, Lanarkshire said: “Adrian is in shock, we all are.

“They came at him from behind and when he put his arm up to defend himself, one of them hit him with the machete."

She told The Sun: “They didn’t even say anything during it all, they didn’t ask for the money, they just went for him and grabbed it.

Evening Times:

“He’s in the hospital and we’re waiting to hear if he needs surgery. When I saw him, he had a huge bandage from his wrist to his elbow. There was a lot of blood.”

Daughter-in-law Melissa Goodbrand said his hand injuries “life-changing”.

The suspects escaped in a stolen blue Skoda Fabia which was later found burnt out in Inverleith Street.
