A teenager was raped as she walked home from a night out at a university student union.
The 19-year-old had attended the Queen Margaret Union at Glasgow University and was making her way home when she was attacked by the man.
Strathclyde Police said the man grabbed her as she was walking in Lilybank Gardens towards Ashton Lane in the city’s west end at around 2am on Saturday.
She had been at the union from Friday night into Saturday morning where the weekly Cheesy Pop event was being held.
The man sexually assaulted her and then ran off into Ashton Lane.
In response to the incident, the university’s Student Representative Council has released information on its website to remind "our students of how to stay safe while socialising at night".
Detective Inspector Alan Brown, of Partick Police office, said the sex attack has been "a very traumatic experience" for the victim and appealed for people in the area who saw or heard anything to contact the police.
The rapist is described as around 5ft 7in, slim build, clear pale complexion and in his early to mid 20s. He had short light, possibly blond hair and was wearing a black full front zipped hooded top and dark tracksuit or jogging bottoms.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the West End CID at Partick on 0141 532 3500.
