A WOMAN transferring cash was forced to the ground outside a post office and robbed of a five-figure sum.

Thieves targeted the 51-year-old on Station Road in Millerston on the outskirts of Glasgow at around 11.25am today.

She was carrying bags containing money when she was approached by three men and threatened with a blunt weapon.

The men made off in a black Renault Clio, later found abandoned in Mossvale Walk.

Detective Sergeant Raymond Hunter said: “This is understood to be a targeted attack on a woman who was in the process of moving money. Although the woman was not seriously injured, this has been a terrifying ordeal for her.

“We are in the process of reviewing CCTV images from the location and we are also gathering images from around the local area to gather further details on the cars involved and the suspects.

“I am appealing to anyone who may have any information or knowledge about the crime or the suspects to contact us. Your information could assist in the investigation and help us trace the men involved.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
