'Brazen' attack on security guard
A security guard was injured when he was robbed as he filled up a cash machine at a college in East Kilbride.
Police said the attack on the 56-year-old guard and his 45-year-old colleague by two men inside South Lanarkshire College was "particularly vicious".
The masked robbers grabbed one of the money boxes and made off at speed in a white estate car.
Officers said the robbery, which took place at 16:00 on Friday, was a "brazen attack" in the middle of the day.
Police have not disclosed how much money was stolen.
Det Insp Laura McLuckie said: "Thankfully, due to the summer holidays, there were no students and only a limited number of staff in the college at the time, however, for those who were there and who witnessed the attack, it was terrifying.
"There is only one entrance and exit to the college so it is possible that the white estate car had been in the area prior to the incident.
"The stolen money box was thrown from the car a short distance away but the cash has been taken from it, however, the security dye pack was activated and anyone handling or in contact with the money will be covered in a dark blue/purple coloured dye."
The 56-year-old guard sustained injuries to his arm was taken to hospital for treatment.
The second guard was not injured.
The first suspect was said to be 5ft 10in to 6ft tall, of slim build, with his face covered by something black.
The second man was about 5ft 7in, of slim build and also had his face covered.
