POLICE are hunting for a sex attacker after a woman was assaulted in a city park.  

The late night attack in Glasgow Green happened on Saturday, April 19, at around 11.30 pm.

A 27-year-old woman was walking from the Saltmarket through the East End park on her way home from work when she was approached.

"Detectives are also carrying out further enquiries in the local area and gathering CCTV footage in an effort to gather more information on the man responsible.

"It is vital that we trace this man, and I would urge anyone who may have been in the park and witnessed this assault take place, or who may have seen him acting suspiciously or running through the park to contact police as a matter of urgency."
