We are appealing for information after a robbery at Charing Cross railway station in Glasgow.

At around 10pm on Friday 30 December, the victim, a 22- year-old man, was standing at the entrance when he was approached by another man who started speaking to him.

A second man then approached and together with the first man they threatened the victim with a knife and demanded he hand over his belongings.

They stole cash and an iPhone 6 mobile phone.

They threatened the victim again and told him to get on a train which he did.

The offenders then left the area on foot.

The first offender is white, aged in his thirties, slim build, around 5ft 10ins tall with short grey hair.

He was wearing a black coat and dark jeans.

The second offender is white, aged in his mid-twenties, large build, around 6ft 2ins tall. He was wearing a black hat, glasses, scarf, black bomber style jacket and dark jeans. He was carrying a kitchen knife.

Investigating officer, Det Con Dave Merchant, said: “Fortunately the victim was not injured during this robbery, but it was no doubt a traumatising ordeal and his personal items were stolen from him.

“I would like to speak to anybody who was in the Charing Cross station area on the night of Friday 30 December, who may have seen or heard the incident, or be able to help us identify the offenders.

“Please contact me by calling 0800 40 50 40 or text information to 61016, quoting reference number 242 of 9/01/17.”
