Police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in a town centre park.

The 15-year-old victim was in Robertson Park, Renfrew, at about 10.45pm on Monday when a man started speaking to her.

The suspect is white, aged between 20 and 30, slim and with dark hair.

He was wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt with a black and grey pattern and a black puffa-style jacket.

Detective Chief Inspector Filippo Capaldi said: ''Extensive enquiries are under way to establish the exact circumstances surrounding this incident and to trace the person responsible.

''Additional officers will be on patrol to provide reassurance to members of the public and I would like to speak to anyone who was in the park or surrounding area on Monday night.

''Perhaps you were out walking your dog or making your way home from somewhere? If you saw or heard anything suspicious or a man matching the description, please get in touch.

''Anyone with information can contact officers at the public protection unit based in Renfrew via 101 or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.''
