Constable Bryan Evans, of Govan Police Station, said: “This has been a terrifying experience for the shop staff and thankfully nobody was hurt in the incident.

“The area was extremely busy around the time of the incident and I’m appealing for anyone who may have seen a man matching the description before or after the incident to contact police.

“I would also ask anyone who was in the area with dash cam footage that may help our investigation to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact police via 101, quoting incident number 2300 of 24 November.
