Police are looking to trace two men who are wanted in connection with the rape of a teenage girl in Renfrewshire.

The 16-year-old was attacked in a wooded area behind Dykebar Hospital just off of Grahamston Road in Paisley last Saturday.

She was later found by a passing motorist on nearby Hurlet Road.

Officers revisited the scene a week on from the attack as they urged anyone with any information on the incident or the men involved to contact them as soon as possible.

The two suspects that police are looking to trace are described as being white, Scottish men, aged in their early 20s and wearing dark clothing.

One man was around 5ft 9ins tall and the other was around 6ft.

Detective Inspector Colin MacRitchie, Paisley CID, said: “Officers revisited the scene last night from 7pm, precisely one week on from the attack.

“We are keen to jog people’s memories and have been speaking to locals to seek any new information. It’s important that we identify the people responsible for this as soon as possible.

“The ordeal was terrifying for the victim and we continue to provide her with the necessary support she requires.

“If you saw anything significant, no matter how small you may think this is, please contact 101.”
