Police are appealing for information following a robbery at a shop in Springburn on Friday.

Around 11.10am two men dressed in dark clothing entered Malik General Stores on Keppochhill Road. They threatened the shop keeper with knives before making off with a three-figure sum of cash. It is understood they ran off in the direction of Crichton Street. No one was injured during the incident.

The two suspects are described as white men of medium height and medium build. One was wearing entirely dark clothing and had most of his face covered. The second suspect was wearing a navy coloured body warmer with a hooded top.

Detective Sergeant Peter Sharp, from the Community Investigation Unit, said: “Thankfully no one was injured during the robbery, however, it was a very frightening experience for the staff at the shop.

“Our enquiries are still at quite an early stage. We are analysing available CCTV and conducting interviews. I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of the shop at the time of incident to contact police with any relevant information.

“You may have heard a disturbance, or seen someone running away from Keppochill Road around the time of the incident. You may think the information you hold is insignificant, but as part of our larger inquiry, your information could make all the difference.”

Anyone with information about the incident can contact Police Scotland on 101. You can also contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111, where confidentiality can be maintained.
