Detectives are appealing for information following a knife point robbery on board a train to Drumchapel station in Glasgow yesterday evening. 

Shortly before 11pm yesterday (02/02), a 22-year-old man was travelling with a friend on board the 9.57pm ScotRail service between Whifflet and Dalmuir. 

After Westerton station, both the victim and his friend became aware of another man who approached them and sat next to them. The man then pulled out a knife, threatening the victim whilst ordering him to hand over his iPhone. Fearing for his life, the victim handed the offender his phone. The offender then left the service at Drumchapel station. 

The offender is a white man in his twenties, approximately 5ft 10ins and of slim build. He had dirty blonde hair and a scar on his right cheek. He was wearing a two tone grey tracksuit with a large EA7 mark on it and was carrying a bottle of Buckfast. 

The offender and another man may have been in the Anniesland area prior to the incident.

Detectives are keen to speak with anyone who was on board this train and saw what happened. Likewise, if you know anyone matching the description of the offender, please get in touch. 

Information can be passed to BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 669 of 01/02/2018. Alternatively, pass information anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
