Woman gang-raped in Glasgow as she walked home in the early hours of Saturday morning
THREE men are being hunted by police after a woman was raped as she walked along the street in the early hours of the morning.
The 33-year-old was walking on Edinbeg Avenue in the Toryglen area of Glasgow when a man got out of a car and forced her into a common close.
The man and two other men, who the victim believes were also in the car, then subjected her to a serious sexual assault between midnight and 3am on Saturday.
They fled following the attack and the woman managed to make her way home. She contacted police the next morning.
She did not require hospital treatment but has been left extremely distressed by the incident, police said.
The three suspects are described as Asian and in their 20's.
DCI Sharon MacGregor said: "Extensive inquiries are taking place by a team of dedicated officers and we are carrying out door to door enquiries and checking all available CCTV in order to trace the men responsible for this assault.
"I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard a disturbance in Edinbeg Avenue in the early hours of Saturday to contact police.
“I would also ask anyone who saw three Asian men in a light coloured car, possibly white or silver and which may be a BMW or similar make in the area around Edinbeg Avenue to contact officers.
Chief Inspector Carol McGuire Area Commander said: “I would like to reassure the public that we have and will continue to have extra uniform patrols in the area and anyone with any concerns should speak to an officer.
“A crime of this nature is very rare in what is a tight knit community”
