A woman's been robbed of more than £10,000 in the street on the south side of Glasgow.
The 51-year-old was on Station Road in Millerston, where it's thought she was taking money to the Post Office, around 11.25am on Monday when she was approached by three men.
They threatened her, with one man carrying a blunt weapon, before forcing her to the ground and robbing the woman of two bags she was carrying. The bags contained a five-figure sum of money. We understand the amount taken was less the £50,000.
The men then made off in a black Renault Clio car which was later found abandoned in Mossvale Walk, Glasgow. It is thought that the men then used another car to escape.
The woman was not seriously injured in the incident however it was a frightening experience for her and she has been left badly shaken.
The suspects are described as: as a white man is his early 30s who was approximately 5'8" in height. He was wearing a red/blue Tammy type hat and a red zipped top. The second and third suspects are described as white, in their mid 30s and wearing dark clothing.
