Officers say the driver was not injured in the attack.

Detectives in Glasgow are on the hunt for two men accused of theft, assault, and assault with intent to rob.

The two suspects are thought to have left the shop and crossed into Admiral Street, where they assaulted a man and failed to steal his bike.

Their second victim did not need medical treatment either.

Detectives said the two men are white, aged between 20 and 25-years-old.

The first suspect is heavy set with dark hair, and was wearing a grey Adidas top and black trousers.

The second suspect had a shaved head, and wore a light coloured, hooded Adidas top and black Under Armour jogging trousers.

Officers have been checking CCTV footage for any additional information.

Detective Constable Kirstie Black said: “From our enquiries carried out so far, we know there were other people in the area at the time of the incidents.

“They may not be aware these two men are responsible for these crimes and I would ask them to get in touch with us as I’m sure they have information which could assist our enquiries as we try to locate these two men.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call officers at Govan Police Station via 101. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
