Two Glasgow shop workers were threatened at knifepoint in a robbery on Thursday night in Castlemilk. 

Around 9.50pm a man entered the 101 Store at Castlemilk Arcade where he threatened the staff members with a knife and demanded money. 

He then left the premises with a two-figure sum of cash and a 24-pack of Budweiser beer before heading in the direction of Castlemilk Drive. 

Police are keen to trace the man who is described as being white, of stocky build, and wearing a grey tracksuit top with the hood up, a black beanie hat, grey jogging bottoms with black socks over them, and white trainers.

Detective Constable Mark McCallum from the Community Investigation Unit based at Govan said: “The suspect was loitering around outside the store for several minutes before he entered and I would appeal to anyone who saw him to please get in touch.

“I would also like to speak to anyone who noticed a man matching the above description carrying a 24-pack of Budweiser beer in the area to come forward, as well as asking motorists with dash-cams who were in the vicinity of Castlemilk Drive to check their footage, in case they have captured anything which could be of significance to our investigation.
