Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sex­ual as­sault in the Croft­foot area are keen to speak to a cy­clist who rode past as the two at­tack­ers struck.

De­tec­tives said a 35-year-old woman was at­tacked af­ter she was ap­proached by two men on Menock Road, near Castlemilk Road, at about 8pm on Mon­day of last week.

The woman was said to have been“ex­tremely dis­tressed”by the in­ci­dent.

Po­lice said a man cy­cled past at the time of the in­ci­dent and the as­sailants ran off. Of­fi­cers are keen to trace him.

Both men were white and spoke with lo­cal ac­cents.

One was about 5ft 8 in and the other about 6ft tall. Both are be­lieved to be in their mid-20s.

Det Sgt Craig McPhail said:“I am ap­peal­ing to the lo­cal com­mu­nity who may have seen this in­ci­dent to get in touch and in par­tic­u­lar the cy­clist.

“Peo­ple may have thought that there was noth­ing un­to­ward go­ing on but a woman has been as­saulted and it’s im­per­a­tive we trace the men re­spon­si­ble.

“If you were the cy­clist out on your bike that night, then please do con­tact us, any small piece of in­for­ma­tion could as­sist our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact po­lice by di­alling 101.
