Gang of three robbers attack man

Detectives are appealing for information after a 23-year-old man was robbed in Johnstone.

At around 11.30pm on Sunday night (May 23), the man was within Johnstone High School car park, off Beith Road, when he met with a woman. She’s described as being of heavy build, aged 40-50s, with some missing teeth, blonde/brown hair in a ponytail, wearing a grey jumper and was driving a small white car. While speaking to the woman, the victim was approached by three men wearing dark clothing, masks and gloves who subsequently assaulted him and stole his car keys.

The victim sustained a minor facial injury and was very shaken as a result of the robbery.

Detective Constable Jade Clark, of Paisley CID, said: “Our enquiries are continuing to identify and trace the three men involved and we are also keen to get in touch with the woman who spoke to the victim.

“Anyone with any information that will assist our investigation should contact Paisley CID via 101, quoting reference 0012 of 24 May. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
