Police have made an appeal for witnesses to come forward after a man was robbed of a three figure sum in Paisley.

At around 7.15pm on Thursday evening, a 21-year-old man was walking along Underwood Road near to the roundabout at Well Street, Paisley, when a dark coloured car pulled up beside him.

The passenger of the car got out, demanded money from the man and then ran back to the car with a three figure sum of cash and made off.

The man was not injured during the incident.

Officers wish to speak particularly to drivers with dash cams to come forward.

The suspect is described as white, Scottish, local accent, 5ft10 to 6ft in height, of slim build and was wearing a grey hooded top.

Detective Constable David McIntosh, Paisley CID, said: “We have yet to establish why this man was targeted but whatever the reason, we need to trace those responsible.

“The car was on the other side of the road as the man walked along Underwood Road and then it did a U turn and drove alongside him. Once the suspect took the money, the car drove off at speed, so I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, who saw the incident or indeed the car speeding off, to get in touch. If your car has a dash cam, we would like to hear from you as well as it may have captured some of the incident and that would assist our enquiry.

“Information can be passed to officers at Paisley CID via 101. Please quote incident number 3763 of the 8 August 2019 when calling. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be called in confidence on 0800 555 111.”
