The two men were seen shortly before the incident walking up Union Street and were then seen running back towards the railway station after the incident, using the pedestrian crossing towards ‘Discovery Point’.


A police spokesman said “This was a high value theft which occurred on a Friday afternoon when the city centre would have been busy with shoppers on their way home and people possibly leaving work early and heading to Dundee train station.


“From our extensive enquiries we have updated the descriptions of the men we wish to trace and we can confirm that one of the men was wearing a very distinctive fur lined navy blue deer stalker hat and we believe he spoke with a Liverpudlian accent.


“We also know that the two men walked into the city centre from the direction of Dundee Railway station and it is possible that the men were in the Discovery Point area for a short time prior to the incident.


“I would urge anyone who may have been in the Discovery Point and Union Street areas of Dundee at around this time and saw men fitting these descriptions to come forward to assist us with our enquiries.”
