A man has been left 'shaken' after he was threatened with a knife and robbed in broad daylight in Paisley.

Detectives are appealing to the public for information after a 44-year-old man was walking through Ferguslie Gardens on Thursday, May 9, at around 7.15am when he was approached by a man who threatened and robbed him.

The victim was reportedly threatened with a knife and forced to handover money before the suspect made off in the direction of Ferguslie with a two-figure sum.
