Men sought over armed raid at Glasgow shop

Police are attempting to trace two men who carried out an armed robbery at a shop in north Glasgow.

They threatened the shop keeper in Malik General Stores, on Keppochhill Road, near Springburn, at about 11:10.

The men then made off with a three-figure sum of cash in the direction of Crichton Street. No-one was injured.

Police are analysing CCTV images and have appealed for witnesses. Both suspects are described as white, and of medium build and height.

One was wearing dark clothing and had most of his face covered.

The second suspect was wearing a navy body warmer with a hooded top.

Det Sgt Peter Sharp said: "Thankfully no one was injured during the robbery, however, it was a very frightening experience for the staff at the shop.

"Our inquiries 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."
