A new appeal has been made for possible witnesses to an armed robbery at a Denny petrol station on Tuesday evening to come forward.

Police are looking to speak to people who were in or around the Gulf petrol station in Glasgow Road at 9.40 p.m.

The male or female suspect made off with a three figure sum and fled in the direction of Paris Avenue. He or she is described as white, 16 to 30 years-old, of slim build and 5ft 8in to 6ft tall. They were wearing dark clothing including a black hooded top with the hood up and white toggles untied.

Officers would like to trace a possible witness who was seen walking in the direction of the garage at around 9.35 p.m. She is described as being 13 to 16-years-old with dark hair tied in a donut bun, 5ft 3in tall, average build, wearing a dark long sleeve jumper, ankle-length skinny jeans and plimsoles.

Detective Inspector Graeme Hendry said: “I’d like to thank the public for the response so far and to reassure them that there is a dedicated team investigating this crime.

“We are now looking to trace a girl who was seen in Glasgow Road as she may have some key information.

“I’d also like to appeal to householders in the area, particularly around Paris Avenue, to come forward if they believe they heard or saw anything suspicious.

“We would also ask them to contact us if they have CCTV in their home which could be valuable to us.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101. Information can be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
