A woman has been left injured after she was attacked by a man in the west end of Glasgow.

The 29-year-old was on Woodlands Road at around 3.45am on Friday when the man approached and assaulted her near its junction with St George’s Road.

Two other men came to the victim’s aid and she attended the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.

Her attacker, who is described as being of south-east Asian appearance and around 25 to 30-years-old with a medium build and short dark hair, made off in the direction of Ashley Street.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a dark hooded jacket and blue jeans.

Police say additional patrols are being carried out in the area as they look to trace the man responsible.

Investigating officers are keen to speak to the men who helped or offered to help the woman and believe they will be able to assist with their investigations.

Detective sergeant Cameron Gilchrist said: “Extensive enquiries are ongoing to find the person responsible and we are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious around the time of this incident.

“In particular we would like to speak to a man who helped the woman after she was assaulted and another man who stopped his car and offered assistance. We believe both may have information that could aid our investigation.

“In addition, if anyone was driving in the area and has dashcam footage that could assist with our enquiries then please get in touch.

“Additional patrols are being carried out in the area”.
