COURAGEOUS staff at a take-away shop scared off knife-wielding thugs who demanded cash.

Three masked men went into the Real Spice Take-away in Stepps brandishing knives at the staff and demanded money.

But the staff managed to scare off the suspects during the frightening ordeal at around 12.10am on Sunday.

All of the men were between 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall. Two were of slim build while another had a stocky build.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw the men run from the shop.
