POLICE have released descriptions of two suspects they believe were involved in a robbery outside a bank in Glasgow which left a man 'traumatised'.

At around 2.30pm on Friday, a 51-year-old security guard working for G4S was delivering money to the Royal Bank of Scoltand on Duke Street when he was approached by two men and threatened with weapons.

The Evening Times understands one of the weapons the men brandished was an axe.

Following the attack, the men ran off with the guard's cash box containing a five-figure sum of money.

The suspects escaped in a small, silvered-coloured vehicle which was set alight shortly after on Myreside Street. It is thought they then got into a black 4x4 vehicle.

The security guard was uninjured but was left 'extremely distressed' by the incident.

Officers say one suspect is described as white, around 5ft 8in tall and of slim build. He was wearing a black hooded top, black jogging trousers and a scarf covering his face.

The other suspect is described as white, around 5ft 8in, of slim build, and he was wearing dark clothing and a dark hat.

Detective Sergeant Graham McCreadie at the Community Investigation Unit, based at Helen Street, Govan. said: "This was a terrifying and dangerous attack which has left a man, who was only doing his job, traumatised. The suspects have then made off with a large sum of money and later set the car they made off in on fire.

"Following enquiries we know that from Myreside Street, they then got into a black coloured 4x4 vehicle.

"Officers are currently carrying out extensive enquiries, however we would ask that anyone who was near to the bank, anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles mentioned or anyone who has dash cam footage from that area to get in touch with police immediately."
