The victim was walking on Edinbeg Avenue in Toryglen between midnight and 3am on Saturday, when a man got out of a light coloured car and forced her into the common close at or around 19 Edinbeg Avenue. The man and two other men, who the victim believed were also in the car, then subjected her to a serious sexual assault.
The men, who're described as Asian and in their 20s, then made off and the victim managed to make her way home. Police were contacted the next morning.
The victim did not require hospital treatment, but has been left extremely distressed by the incident.
DCI Sharon MacGregor said: "Extensive inquiries are taking place by a team of dedicated officers and we are carrying out door to door enquiries and checking all available CCTV in order to trace the men responsible for this assault.
"I would appeal to anyone who saw or heard a disturbance in Edinbeg Avenue in the early hours of Saturday to contact police.
"I would also ask anyone who saw three Asian men in a light coloured car, possibly white or silver and which may be a BMW or similar make in the area around Edinbeg Avenue to contact officers.
Chief Inspector Carol McGuire Area Commander said: "I would like to reassure the public that we have and will continue to have extra uniform patrols in the area and anyone with any concerns should speak to an officer.
"A crime of this nature is very rare in what is a tight knit community.
"Anyone with any information which can help the enquiry is asked to contact London Road Police Office via 101. Alternatively information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
