Police investigating the rape of a woman in a city centre are keen to trace the occupants of two vehicles which passed near the scene.
The woman, 24, was subjected to a serious sexual assault in Holm Street near Wellington Street in Glasgow at around 1.15am on Saturday, September 26.
Detectives are keen to speak to the occupants of two 4x4-type vehicles that were seen in Holm Street between 1am and 1.30am that day.
They would also like to trace a man and a woman who spoke to the victim in McDonalds in Jamaica Street shortly before police reached the scene.
Detective Inspector Graeme McLachlan of Greater Glasgow's Divisional Rape Investigation Unit said: "The enquiry team are continuing to study a large amount of CCTV footage from in and around that area.
"The suspect approached the woman as she was walking on Holm Street near to Wellington Street and he is described as white, between 25-30 years of age and of slim build with short dark hair, and was wearing blue jeans
"I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Holm Street between 1am and 1.30am on Saturday 26 September. In particular, I would urge the occupants of two 4x4-type vehicles that were seen in Holm Street between 1am to 1.30am to come forward to police, as they may have unwittingly witnessed something vital to this investigation.
"I am also keen to trace a man and woman who spoke to the victim within McDonalds in Jamaica Street around 1.30am on Saturday morning shortly before police attended.
"The woman we wish to trace is described as white, late teens to early 20s with shoulder-length dark hair. She was wearing a light-coloured blouse with a red or pink check, dark trousers and carrying a black bag with white straps. The man with her is described as white and around the same age with short fair hair. He was wearing a black T-shirt with a white collar, grey jacket and dark-coloured trousers and trainers.''
