Woman Raped In Glasgow Centre

A woman has been subjected to a serious sexual assault in a "terrifying'' attack near a city centre train station.

The 24-year-old was walking close to Glasgow Central when she was approached by a man at around midnight on Friday.

He attacked her in a lane before leaving in an unknown direction.

He is described as a white Scottish man, aged between 25 and 30, slim, with short dark hair. He was wearing blue jeans.

Detective Inspector Graeme McLachlan said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for the young woman and she has been left traumatised by what happened.

"Our officers are currently working with her to establish exactly where the incident occurred, however we understand that it was in a lane near to Central Station.

"I would appeal to anyone who was in the surrounding area around midnight on the Friday and who saw or heard anything suspicious to get in touch.''
