Detective Sergeant Neil Guy, of the Community Investigation Unit at Helen Street Police Office, said: “The masked man got into the passenger seat of a dark coloured Audi A4 and made off from the scene and headed south towards Riddrie Knowes.

“This vehicle was later found burn-out in Riddrie Crescent and is currently undergoing extensive forensic examination for any evidence that will assist our investigation.

“We have had a good response from members of the public following our earlier appeal. However, I still need anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed the robbery to get in touch with the enquiry team.
