The woman posted of her or­deal on Face­book as a warn­ing to others.

She de­scribed get­ting off the num­ber 75 bus on Menock Road near the junc­tion with Crof­tend Av­enue. She was fol­lowed through the un­der­pass onto King’s Park Av­enue and then on to Castlemilk Road be­fore she man­aged to make it to her home on Kil­morie Drive in Ruther­glen.

De­scrib­ing the in­ci­dent, she wrote: “Never felt so scared in my life.”

Po­lice Scot­land con­firmed of­fi­cers are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the re­port and ad­di­tional pa­trols are in place in the area.

A spokes­woman said: “We can con­firm that we are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port from a 21-year-old woman that she was fol­lowed by three men in King’s Park, Glas­gow, on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 3.

“The woman got off a bus in Menock Road, Croft­foot around 8pm and was walk­ing in King’s Park Av­enue to­wards Kil­morie Drive, Ruther­glen, when she was fol­lowed by three men - who had also been on the bus.

“At no time did the men ap­proach or speak to her, how­ever, as she was con­cerned about the in­ci­dent she con­tacted po­lice on her re­turn home.

“En­quiries are con­tin­u­ing and of­fi­cers are check­ing CCTV both from the bus and in the lo­cal area. Ad­di­tional pa­trols are also in the area.

“Any­one who saw the men - who are only de­scribed at this time as of Asian in ap­pear­ance and in their 30s - in the area or who has any in­for­ma­tion that will as­sist of­fi­cers with their en­quiry is asked to con­tact Ruther­glen Po­lice via 101.”
