Kilmarnock Road: Glasgow Royal Bank of Scotland robbed


A brazen thief has made off with a three-figure sum after robbing a Glasgow bank.

The Royal Bank of Scotland on Kilmarnock Road in Shawlands was targeted in a robbery earlier today at around 4.05pm.

The man threatened staff and demanded the money before he fled the scene.

He is described as being aged between 40 and 50 and was wearing a grey hooded top, light blue jeans and carrying an item wrapped in plastic carrier bags.

Detective Sergeant Laura Roberts, of Govan Police Station, said: “Thankfully no one was injured during the robbery, however it was a very frightening experience for the staff in the bank.

“Extensive enquiries are ongoing to trace the man responsible and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time, or just prior to the incident, to contact police.

“I would also be keen to speak to anyone who may have private CCTV or dashcam footage from the area.

“Anyone with information which may assist our investigation should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 2174 of Monday, February 28, 2022.

“Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.”
