A guy held up his local subway and he didn't even get the sub of the day. Only in glasgow --- Armed Robbery - Alexandra Parade, Glasgow

Detectives at London Road Police Office are appealing for information following an armed robbery at a shop in Alexandra Parade, Glasgow on Thursday 3 February 2011.

Around 2035 hours on Thursday night, a man entered the Subway store at 433 Alexandra Parade and threatened the female member of staff with what appeared to be a firearm and demanded money, but he then ran from the shop empty-handed onto Alexandra Parade heading southbound.

No staff members were injured as a result of this incident .

There were no customers in the shop at the time.
Description of suspect

The suspect is described as white.18-21 years of age, 5ft 7” – 5ft 9” in height and of slim build with pale skin and gaunt appearance. He was wearing a dark-coloured balaclava, a quilted ‘Barbour’ jacket, a bright yellow top, black gloves, dark-coloured trousers and blue and white trainers. He was also wearing glasses.
Appeal for information

Detective Constable Dougie Slater of London Road Police Office said today:

“Officers are currently carrying out extensive enquiries in the local area and studying CCTV footage in an effort to gather more information on this crime and the man responsible

“Initial enquiries have revealed that the suspect was also in the nearby Dominos Pizza shop shortly before the robbery and may have been outside the Subway shop for around 20 minutes before the robbery took place.

“Alexandra Parade is a busy street and I would appeal to anyone who may have seen this man acting suspiciously in the local area, or may recognise his description to come forward to police as a matter of urgency."



Any witnesses, or anyone with information that may assist police enquiries should contact London Road Police Office on 0141 532 4600. Alternatively CRIMESTOPPERS can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.

DLM thinks I am from Glasgow (I am not) so she posts up lots of derogatory comments about the place. Worse one being when the earthquake happened up North few weeks back and she put "Too far North :(" - mods removed post.

Ah I see, no worries though, all you ever see on TV is the rough side of Glasgow so can understand why some people see it as an absolute dive.

Love Glasgow. Better than any other British city - been to almost every city here - but nothing compares to home.

May have had a different opinion if I lived in say, Drumchapel or something though lol.

If I even knew what you were trying to imply I probably still wouldn't be angry - I'm finding it hard to take you seriously...

It really is. I used to live five minutes from that Subway, and we're talking about a part of town where someone got stabbed outside my flat, and where all the offies looked like prison visitor rooms, with bars and bulletproof plexiglass between you and the cashier. And this was a nice part of Glasgow.
