BLADE-wielding robbers made off with a TILL during a shocking tea-time robbery in North Glasgow.

Two men stormed into the First Choice superstore on Auchinairn Road and threatened staff members with bladed weapons on Friday at around 5.15pm.

They then grabbed the till and fled in the direction of Kincardine Drive.

The men are described as being 20-25-years-old and approximately 6ft in height. One of the men was wearing a grey hooded top, with a black scarf concealing his face. The second male was wearing a black jacket, also with a black scarf over his face.

Detective Constable Ronnie Wyllie said: “This was a very frightening experience for the staff in the store, who were simply going about their jobs. Thankfully none of them were injured.”

The two men were spotted in the lane beside the store acting suspiciously immediately prior to the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0141 532 3700 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
