Four cop cars were deployed to the petty theft on the corner of Allison Street and Daisy Street around 9.15pm last night.

A member of the public called emergency services after believing a shopkeeper was attacked inside Polish and Romanian supplier Afrin minimarket.

But today it emerged the incident was the theft of a soft drink - and the shopkeepers seemed unconcerned.

One staff member at the shop said today: "A man had stolen a bottle of juice from the shop and that was it.

"There was nobody attacked and it's all okay."

We told last night how members of the public had reported a heavy police presence in Govanhill.
