Officers investigating a sexual assault on a teenager in Carnoustie’s Dundee Street on Sunday night (April 12) are appealing for a man and woman who were in the area at the time to come forward and contact police.

The potential witnesses were walking together along Dundee Street in a westwards direction, towards the junction with North Burnside Street, between 9.45pm and 10.05pm when the assault on the 13-year-old took place.

They may remember passing a garage near to a bus stop and may have seen or heard activity in the area or they could have further information that will assist with enquiries into the incident and local officers would like to speak to them.

Police would also encourage anyone who saw a man in his twenties, possibly under the influence of alcohol, wearing a dark coloured long sleeved top and blue coloured jeans in the area of Dundee Street or at local businesses that evening, to contact police.

Any information can be provided to Police Scotland on 101 or if you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police Scotland appealed for witnesses yesterday (Thursday) following the report of a sexual assault on the 13-year-old girl.

Officers are continuing to carry out extensive enquiries into the incident.

In appealing for information, police are keen to trace a man in connection with the assault who is described as being white, of slim build and aged in his 20s.

Detective Inspector Andy Patrick said: “This is a particularly distressing assault on a young girl and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen this man in the area of Dundee Street between 9.30 p.m. and 10.15 p.m. on Sunday, to come forward and assist us with our investigation.

“We would reassure the public that we are using all available means of enquiry to identify the person responsible and we would urge anyone who has any information that may assist with our enquiries to contact us.”
