A WOMAN was raped under a railway bridge in Broomielaw.

Police Scotland is appealing for information after a 30 year-old woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault on Broomielaw, near the railway bridge over the River Clyde in Glasgow on the evening of Monday 16 July 2018.


Following enquiries officers investigating are keen to speak to two men who are seen on CCTV in the area who may have information that can help.

The first man is described as white, mid-20s to mid-30s, 5ft 8, of medium build and had brown hair in a side parting. He was wearing a dark coloured zip-up jacket, dark coloured trousers and shoes and was carrying a black rucksack over his shoulders.


The second man who is seen nearby, is described as having sallow skin, is of medium build, and was wearing a light coloured zip up hooded top with white logo at left breast area and a dark coloured skip cap with a light coloured logo.

Detective Inspector David MacGregor, Divisional Rape Investigation Unit, said:


“This was a traumatic attack for this woman and it is critical that we trace the person responsible as soon as possible.

“I would like to reassure the community that our officers are doing everything they can, including an extensive review of CCTV in the area, however, we need help from members of the public who may have vital information to assist with the investigation and therefore we are appealing for these two men to come forward”


“The first man is seen helping the 30 year-old woman shortly after the attack and had walked her to the Riverboat Casino. The second man is seen nearby, and may have witnessed the attack or have information that can help us.


“I would urge these men to come forward.

“Were you in the area late on Monday evening? Did you see anything out of the ordinary? It may have seemed insignificant at the time, but could be vital in helping us find the person responsible.”
