Sex attack on 16-year-old girl in Glasgow

Scene of the attack The attack happened on the 12th floor stairwell of a car park in Oswald Street

Police investigating a sex attack on a 16-year-old girl in a Glasgow city centre car park have appealed for help to trace two possible witnesses.

The teenager was with a 17-year-old male when she was assaulted on the 12th floor stairwell of the car park in Oswald Street at about 11:00 on 29 July.

Police said a dark-haired woman carrying books entered the landing just before the attack and a man in a dark suit passed by shortly after.

Officers want to speak to both people.

Det Insp Craig Willison, of Police Scotland, said: "We are keen to trace these two witnesses, who potentially could provide us with information which may help with our inquiry.

"I'd like to reassure the public that we are following a positive line of inquiry in this case, and I would like to reiterate that Police Scotland takes any report of any sexual assault very seriously."
