A potentially vital witness is being sought by police after a woman was grabbed by three men and raped near Queen's Park in Glasgow last month.

Police want to speak to a man who paid for her bus fare, as part of their inquiries into the incident on 13 April in the lane off Torrisdale Street.

They both took the 38A bus from Jamaica Street to Pollokshaws Road near Queens Drive at about 23.10 that night.

He and the victim then walked to Queens Drive where they parted company.

A Police Scotland spokesman said the man may have vital information to assist the investigation.

He was described as being in his early to late 50s, wearing a dark baseball cap with a white "NY" motif, a dark Puffa jacket with white writing on the left chest area, and blue jeans.

The 24-year-old victim was described as being of medium build, with long brown hair, and was wearing a grey oversized hooded top, light-coloured ripped jeans, and light-coloured trainers.

The spokesman said a number of other potential witnesses were also being sought.

He said CCTV had captured them being approached and spoken to by the victim around the Pollokshaws Road/Nithsdale Road area at about 23.40 that evening.

Police urged anyone who was in the area, who may have seen or heard anything, to contact them.
