Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempted robbery took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

At around 2.30am, a 24-year-old man was walking on Niddry Street near to New Sneddon Street when he was approached by another man and threatened.

The suspect is described as white, between 29-30 years of age, 5ft 8 to 5ft 10 inches in height and of stalky build, bald with stubble. He was wearing a black North Face Jacket and denims.

Sergeant Manjit Singh-Kaila from Paisley Police Station said: “Officers are continuing their enquiries to trace the man responsible and we are currently studying CCTV footage and speaking to local residents and businesses.

“At the time of the incident there would have been a number of people in the vicinity who had left nightclubs and pubs nearby and I would appeal to anyone who witnessed what happened or saw anything suspicious to get in touch.

“Officers are carrying out additional patrols in the area however, I would stress that this appears to have been an isolated incident.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police through the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number 0794 of Sunday 22 April 2018. Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
