A TEENAGER suffered a sexual assault in a west end street in Glasgow.

The 19-year-old was walking alone when a man, thought to be in his 30s, sexually assaulted her then began shouting sexual remarks before running off.

The assault happened around 11.20pm on Tuesday, near the junction of West End Park Street and West Princes Street, which police describe as "usually quiet".

Detective Constable Graham Morrison, from Partick CID, said sexual crimes will not be tolerated.

He said: “This incident took place in a residential area which is usually quiet at that time on a Tuesday night.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen or heard anything suspicious to contact police.

“Officers are continuing with enquiries, examining CCTV footage and speaking to local residents.

"Sexual crimes will not be tolerated in our community."

The man is said to have had a heavy build and short to medium brown hair.

At the time of the incident he was wearing black thin-rimmed glasses, a white long sleeved top and dark coloured trousers.
