Eyemouth takeaway delivery woman robbed

Police have appealed for witnesses after a knife-wielding man robbed a woman delivering a takeaway meal in the Scottish Borders.

The incident happened at about 23:00 on Saturday on Glebe Crescent in Eyemouth.

The 52-year-old woman had been delivering a takeaway meal when the man approached her with a knife and demanded she hand over her takings.

He then ran off down Glebe Crescent. He was wearing a dark green hooded top, dark jeans and white trainers.

Pc John Aitchison said: "We are appealing for any potential witnesses who may have been in the town centre around this time and remember seeing a man walking a medium-sized dog to contact police immediately.

"If anyone has any information which may assist with this inquiry, they are urged to come forward."
