Teenager dragged into woods and sexually assaulted by dog walker

Police are hunting for a dog walker who dragged a teenager into woods and sexually assaulted her.

The 17-year-old girl was walking near woodland in Cathkin Road in Glasgow on Tuesday when she was attacked by a man in his 30s.

He engaged the victim in conversation before dragging her from the road sometime between 8pm and 9pm.

The suspect, who is white with short dark hair, bushy eyebrows and a large nose, made off in the direction of Cathkin Braes Golf Club.

He was wearing light grey tracksuit bottoms and an off-white Puffa-style jacket.

Detective Sergeant Jamie Campbell said: “Although this is a B road, it can be pretty busy with cars and the area is used a lot by walkers and runners.

“There is also a cycle track close to the location of the incident and I am appealing to people who use the area to think back and consider if they noticed anything on Tuesday night.

“Perhaps you saw something which seemed a little odd at the time which you dismissed.

“Now that you know a crime has occurred your information could prove vital.

“I would urge anyone with any information to please get in touch with us, no matter how insignificant you think the information may be, let us be the judge and pass it on.”
