Woman raped by two men on canal path in Clydebank area

Police are hunting two men who raped a 32-year-old woman on a canal path in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire.

The woman had travelled to the area from Glasgow city centre on Sunday night in the company of three men.

Two of them carried out the attack on the canal path, near Jellico Street, between 20:30 and 21:30.

The victim went to a nearby shop and police were called. She suffered minor abrasions but declined medical help. Police have appealed for witnesses.

Two of the suspects are described as having shaved heads. One is said to be tall and the other "noticeably shorter".

Victim re-interviewed

Det Insp Douglas Wilson, of Police Scotland, said: "The victim will be re-interviewed in an effort to establish the full circumstances of events on Sunday evening. At this time, we know she went to the area with the males prior to the assault.

"It is believed that they may have walked to the canal path having travelled to Dalmuir from Glasgow and I would ask anyone who remembers seeing a woman with three men walking in that direction to come forward.

"I would also ask anyone who saw the assault, heard any sort of disturbance or witnessed the victim or suspects leaving the scene to telephone police."

Det Insp Wilson said everything possible was being done to trace those responsible.

He added: "Officers will be in the area and I would encourage anyone with information or indeed any concerns to speak to them."
