Police appeal for a man who pulled up in a car and spoke to the victim after the incident to get in touch.

A man was robbed of his headphones in the West End in the early hours of Wednesday August 2.

The 25-year-old victim was walking along Gibson Street, near to the entrance to Kelvingrove Park, at around 00.35am when he was approached by a group of four men.

The men robbed the victim of his headphones before making off into the park.

The men are described as white and between 20 and 25 years old.

Detective Constable Greg Turnbull is from the Community Investigation Unit based at Govan.
