The staff were approached by two men. One of the suspects assaulted one of the staff members before making off with a large sum of cash.

The security staff member was not seriously injured and did not require medical treatment.

The suspects are both described as speaking with Scottish accents, with one man of stocky build wearing a grey tracksuit and the other of slimmer build wearing dark-coloured clothing.

They fled the scene in a green Vauxhall Adam car which was recovered a short distance away. They are then believed to have got into a silver-coloured car and left the area.

Detective Sergeant Graham McCreadie from Govan CID said: “Fortunately the staff members were not injured but have been left understandably shaken by the incident.

“The robbery happened while many would have been asleep but I would ask that anyone who has private CCTV in the area checks their systems for any footage of the incident, the suspects, or the vehicles prior to, or after, the robbery.

“I would also ask that any motorists using Glasgow Road or driving in the Baillieston area overnight check their dash-cam devices for either the Vauxhall Adam or silver vehicle around the premises or around the time of the incident.

“We’re continuing to investigate an incident of a similar nature at a bank on Smithycroft Road on Tuesday, 17 December and are seeking to establish any link between these incidents.”

Those with information should call Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 0410 of 27 December, or report this to Crimestoppers anonymously to 0800 555 111.
