A WOMAN was robbed during a "terrifying" ordeal after ordering food from Instagram.

The 35-year-old ordered food from an online delivery service called ‘Rabs Delivery Service’ through Instagram on Wednesday, June 12.

Around 9.35pm that evening she was informed her order had arrived.

But when she approached the window of a navy blue car which had stopped outside her house to pay, a man grabbed her arm, causing her to fall as the car then moved away.

The man made off with the money she had been holding.

The woman sustained minor injuries during the incident on Kirktonholme Road, East Kilbride, and was taken to Hairmyres Hospital.

Detective Constable Craig MacKenzie, Cambuslang CID, said: "This was a terrifying experience for this woman and it is vital that we trace those responsible.

"Our officers have been carrying out a number of enquiries, however have been unable to trace anyone from ‘Rabs Delivery Service’ at this time and believe the account may have been deleted.

"We are appealing for anyone who may have used this account, or who knows anything about it to get in touch.

"We would also ask anyone who may have any dash-cam footage from in and around Kirktonholme Road on Wednesday evening to get in touch with us – you may have information that can help us."

The car is described as navy blue and had four men, all of Asian appearance, within.

Anyone with any information should contact Police via 101, quoting incident number 4020 of Wednesday, June 12 2019.
