Police have cordoned off a busy city centre street after a teenage girl was sexually assaulted.
A 17-year-old girl was the victim of the attack, understood to have happened on Wednesday between 9:30pm and 10:30pm.
The incident is said to have taken place on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, close to the entrance of East Bath Lane, near Buchanan Galleries shopping centre.
The lane was sealed off today as forensics combed the area and police carried out enquiries.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “Police are carrying out enquiries following the sexual assault of a 17-year-old woman on Sauchiehall Street on Wednesday, November 21.”
“If anyone seen anything out of the ordinary around the lane we would urge them to contact us.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
