A man has been arrested after the alleged rape of an 18-year-old woman on a cycle path in Renfrewshire last week.

The teenager was allegedly attacked while heading towards Linwood, on the path from Morrisons in Johnstone, at about 14:15 on Thursday.

Police said a 29-year-old man had been arrested in connection with the incident and would be the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal.

He is expected to appear from custody at Paisley Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
