Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

The following information was recently circulated by Police Scotland

Detectives are continuing enquiries following an assault with intent to rob in Uddingston on Monday 25 March 2019.

Around 6.20pm, a man entered the Day Today store in Main Street, Uddingston and threatened a male member of staff with a knife. He demanded cigarettes and alcohol. Staff raised the alarm and the man made off empty handed. No-one was injured but the staff member has been left badly shaken.

The suspect is white, around 6 ft. tall, with a stocky build and spoke with a local accent. He was wearing a blue or black coloured top, dark coloured jogging trousers, black trainers and carrying a light coloured rucksack. The man tried to conceal his identity by covering his face.

He then got on a bike and cycled along Caley Brae towards Old Mill Road, Uddingston.

Officers are checking CCTV images for any additional information and carrying out door-to-door enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Rob Andrews said:

“I am appealing to anyone who was in Main Street around the time of the incident. The suspect was on a bike and you may have seen him cycling in the area prior to the incident taking place. If anyone has any information, in particular, any dash cam footage which could prove relevant to our investigation, I would ask them to pass it on to us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact CID officers at Cambuslang via 101, quoting incident number 3315 of Monday 25 March 2019. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
