A woman was sexually assaulted in Aberdeen in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The incident took place yesterday at 12.30am on George Street, between the junctions of St Andrews Street and John Street.
Police Scotland has said that the woman was left “shaken” by the attack, and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Detective Inspector David Howieson said: “This is a very concerning incident and we are working hard to trace the man responsible.
“While thankfully the victim was not injured, she has understandably been left shaken by this incident and I want to praise her quick actions in gaining help.
“A number of people helped the woman after the incident and we believe a group of three men walking in the John Street and George Street area may have witnessed the assault.
“They may have left the Mither Tap pub a short time earlier and I would urge them to come forward and speak to us.
“Additionally, we are aware that a young man walking on George Street wearing headphones waited with the victim and his father gave her a lift home in a white or light-coloured car.
“These witnesses also helped the woman look for her personal belongings that were dropped.
“I would urge these witnesses to come forward and speak to us as they may have information that is vital to our investigation.
“Our investigation is ongoing and we are following a positive line of enquiry.
“Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident 341 of 11 August 2018.
“If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
