Raider pistol whips nightclub worker.
The employee, who is not being named, was working alone in The Apartment club in Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow, when he was attacked by a man waving a gun and wearing a mask.
It is understood that the gunman tied the employee up and then hit him on the back of the head with his pistol, knocking him out. The gunman ran off in the direction of Queen Street with a five-figure sum of money.
His victim managed to get free and called an ambulance. He needed 16 stitches to a head wound but was later released.
Police are appealing for information any members of the public who were in the area around 2.45am yesterday morning.
