Police say the woman stole the man’s mobile, worth around £500, as they both left the lift on the 15th floor.

The man reportedly chased the woman out of the flats and into Dalmuir Park with the help of a passer-by, who contacted police.

Police say the phone was recovered after the woman was traced on Dumbarton Road.

A 28-year-old woman is the subject of a report to the fiscal.
