Pregnant woman is attacked and robbed of handbag on Crow Road in Anniesland

Another man came to the woman’s aid and the suspect ran off with the bag.

A pregnant woman has been attacked and robbed in Anniesland.

The 27 year old woman was walking along Crow Road, near Morrisons, at around 7.50pm on Friday evening when a man approached her from behind and struck her on the head.

The blow caused her to fall to the ground and the man grabbed her handbag.

Another man came to the woman’s aid and the suspect ran off with the bag.

Emergency services attended and the woman was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital to be checked over by medical staff.

She has been left badly shaken by the incident.

The suspect is described as white, believed to be in his 30s, around 5 ft. 7 inches in height with an average build.

He was wearing a black hooded jacket and black coloured trousers.

Officers have been gathering CCTV footage from businesses in the area and will continue to review it for any additional information.

Loitering

The suspect had been loitering in Crow Road, near to the Bank of Scotland at 836 Crow Road from around 7.25pm to 8pm.

During this time, a number of people used the ATM machine at the bank and would have seen this man.

Officers are appealing for the users of the ATM to contact them as they could have relevant information which could assist the investigation and lead to the identification of the suspect.

Detective Sergeant Robert Bowie said: “Enquiries carried out so far show the suspect was loitering in Crow Road near to the bollards at Foulis Lane.

“He has then followed the woman and struck her on the back of the head.

“His actions are cowardly and contemptible and it’s imperative we trace him.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident to consider if you noticed this man, perhaps he caught your eye when he was loitering near the bollards.

“The stolen bag is a mustard coloured handbag, which the suspect may have discarded, if anyone finds the bag, I would ask them to hand it into police as we can examine it for forensic opportunities.

“If anyone has any information or knowledge regarding the incident or the suspect, then please do get in touch.”
