TWO men are being hunted in connection with the sexual assault of a schoolgirl in a seaside town.
The 14-year-old said she was attacked while with a friend, also 14, in Alexandra Parade, Dunoon, in Argyll and Bute at 11pm last Thursday.
Strathclyde Police said the girls met two men and walked with them along the foreshore at Alexandra Parade.
A member of the public called police when they became concerned at the way the girls were acting at a bus stop a short time later.
Detective Inspector Douglas Wilson said: "This inquiry is at a very early stage and we have still to clarify exactly what happened. However, one of the girls has told police she was seriously sexually assaulted by one of the men.
"The suspect is described as of Asian appearance, between 19 and 40 years of age, 5ft 5ins in height, average build, short dark hair, dark eyes and was wearing a long-sleeved purple top.
"He was with a second man, also believed to be of Asian appearance, around 5ft 3ins in height, of a heavier build, between 19 and 40 years of age, dark hair and eyes, and was wearing a yellow long-sleeved top."
Officers have been reviewing CCTV in the area and carrying out door-to-door inquiries to gather more information.
They are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.
Mr Wilson added: "On checking CCTV we saw at least three dog walkers and two young men in the area at that time.
"I am in no way connecting them to the incident other than that they might have seen or heard something that will help us with our inquiries."
