Woman, 56, robbed of her purse in Broomhill by man in his 20s

The 56 year-old victim was walking along Churchill Drive near to Randolph Road, when she was approached from behind by a man who threatened her and demanded her purse.

A woman has been robbed as she walked in Broomhill in the early hours of Saturday.

The 56 year-old victim was walking along Churchill Drive near to Randolph Road, when she was approached from behind by a man who threatened her and demanded her purse.

The incident happened just after midnight Friday into Saturday morning.

The suspect ran off up the grass verge and on to Randolph Road.

He is described as white, late 20s, 6 ft. in height, of slim build and was wearing all black clothing with a ‘snood’ covering his face.

Detective Constable John Fagan, Greater Glasgow Community Investigations Unit, has appealed for the public's help.

“Thankfully the lady was not injured during the robbery, however, it was very frightening for her to experience.

“Although we believe this was an opportunist crime, it’s possible that the man had been hanging about the area prior to the robbery.

“I would ask anyone who may have seen him, even although it was late at night, or who has any information that will assist our enquiries, contact the Community Investigations Unit at Govan Police Station via 101 quoting reference number 0025/17/06.

“Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555 111.”
