Police in Pollokshields are looking for four young men who threatened and robbed a man in Maxwell Park.
The 59-year-old, who was punched in the face but otherwise unharmed, later told police he was concerned for the safety of local people who like to enjoy the park.
The incident took place at around 6.15pm on Wednesday December 2, when the man returning from work, got off a train at Pollokshields East station in Terreagles Avenue.
On his regular route through the park he was approached by four men who threatened him with a weapon – which he did not see – before punching him on the face and stealing a three-figure sum of money. They ran off in the direction of St Andrews Drive.
A small amount of money was recovered in the park shortly afterwards.
The suspects are described as four Asian males, aged approximately 17 to 19 years of age. All were wearing dark hooded tops and dark trousers.
Anyone with information on the attack is asked to contact the Robbery Unit at Pollok Police Office on 0141 532 5639 or Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555111.
Pensioner Bill Rossine doesn’t seem to do relaxing, even at the age of 85. Instead, Bill, from Ruchill, likes challenges and, invariably, when the mood takes him, he is either running or hanging off some tall building as part of a charity stunt.
Bill’s most recent adventure involved abseiling down the Finnieston Crane to raise funds for Sense Scotland, who offer care and support for deafblind and disabled.
Serial fundraiser Bill, who is a friend to many organisations and charities and made £250 after bouncing 200 feet down the crane, said: ‘This is my second abseil. However, this time, there was no wall to walk down, so once you went over the side that was you freefalling.
‘The team working with us were absolutely first class and gave us little tips and reassurance all the way down.’
