Police are hunting for two men who tried to rob a jewellery shop while wielding a sword.

The pair threatened a man and woman working in RM Jewellers in Forfar Avenue in Glasgow’s Cardonald area at around 3pm on Monday and demanded jewellery and money. One of the workers, a 50-year-old man, suffered a slight head injury as he struggled with the men, who fled empty-handed.

They made off in a Skoda Octavia which headed towards Paisley Road West, Strathclyde Police said.

The two would-be robbers are white, in their early-20s, clean shaven and slim. One wore a dark grey hooded top and spoke with a Glasgow accent. The other wore a dark hooded top and jogging bottoms.
