Shop staff 'shaken' after Paisley robbery

Staff at a shop in Paisley were left badly shaken after they were threatened with a "weapon" during a robbery on Friday evening.

Police said the man entered the Mamies Day to Day store in McKenzie Street at about 21:40.

He threatened staff with a weapon and demanded money before running off in the direction of Tannahill Road.

Officers said the robber escaped with a "two-figure sum of money". No-one was injured in the incident.

Det Insp Thomas Parker said: "Officers are in the process of reviewing CCTV footage in an effort to gain more information about the suspect and the incident.

"It's imperative we trace the man responsible and I am appealing to anyone who may have been in area of Tannahill Road and McKenzie Street around the time of the incident to get in touch with us - you may think what you saw or noticed is unimportant but please do pass it on to police."
