There has been a robbery attempt on a woman walking her dog in a woodland area of Glenburn.
At around 12pm yesterday afternoon, a 52-year-old woman was walking her dog in the wooded area off Glenfield Road, Glenburn, Paisley, when she was grabbed from behind by a man who pulled her to the ground and demanded money.
However, she fought him off and, with the dog barking beside her, the suspect ran off into the woods empty handed.
He is described as white, slim/medium build, spoke with a foreign accent, possibly Eastern European, and was wearing a navy blue jacket, tracksuit bottoms and dark coloured trainers.
Detective Constable Stevie Craig, Paisley CID, said: “Thankfully the lady was not injured but she is extremely upset and distressed by what happened.
“Officers have been carrying our enquiries in the area but we would appeal to anyone who may either have seen or heard the attack take place or who may recognise the description of the man responsible.
“It’s possible he may have been hanging around the area for a while and with the area being a popular spot for dog walkers, it’s possible someone may have seen him loitering there.
“I would also ask anyone driving on Glenfield Road, Glenburn Road or roads off these around this time to check their dash cams for anyone fitting this description and contact 101 or attend your local police office with the footage.”
If you have any information that can help Police, contact Paisley CID via phone number 101.
