Man Urged To Contact Police After Woman Subjected To 'Assault'

A young woman suffered a "terrifying ordeal'' after she was assaulted by a man in the east end of Glasgow, police said.

The 20-year-old victim was attacked in Turnbull Street at 8.45pm on Wednesday March 1.

Police have issued images of a man they want to speak to in connection with their investigation and have asked members of the public who recognise him to contact them.

He is described as around 30 years old, 5ft 10in tall, of medium build, clean shaven with short brown hair.

He was wearing a dark three-quarter length jacket and dark trousers, spoke with a strong Glasgow accent and smelled of alcohol.

The man was seen in the city centre and the east end on Argyle Street, London Road and Turnbull Street.

Detective Constable Raymond Hunter from Shettleston CID said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for the young woman involved and it is absolutely imperative that we trace the person responsible.

"I would like to speak to anyone who may have heard or witnessed a disturbance or anyone acting suspiciously, in the Turnbull Street area on Wednesday March 1.

"I would also appeal to the man in the image or anyone who recognises him to please get in touch as we believe he may have information to assist with our inquiries.''
