Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious sexual assault in the Falkirk area.

A 25-year-old woman walking on Haugh Street, Bainsford, was attacked by two men on waste ground leading to ‘Coo Park’ between 12am and 1am on Saturday, March 12.

One man is described as over 6ft tall, of muscular build, between 25 and 35 years old, with a Scottish accent but not local.

He was wearing a long-sleeved, tight-fitted top and trousers.

The second man was also over 6ft tall and between 25 and 35 years-old, with a slim build.

Detective Inspector Allyson Blair, of Larbert Police Station, said: “This woman is obviously extremely upset and distraught following this attack.

“Enquiries utilising both specialist and local resources have been ongoing since the incident was reported, and now we’re asking members of the public for their help.

“We’re urging anyone who remembers seeing two men acting suspiciously around that time, or who recognises their descriptions, to speak to police.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
