Police appeal for help following private hire sexual assault on a man in Glasgow

Police are appealing to a man and a woman who came to the aid of a man who was sexually assaulted in a private hire vehicle between Glasgow and Paisley in the early hours of Sunday 28 October 2018 to contact them. The 22 year old man had been out for the night in Glasgow City Centre around the Argyle Street/Union Street area. Around 2.30am he got into a private hire car to take him home but on route he was touched inappropriately by the driver who then made him leave the car in Paisley. The car was white in colour and the driver is described as being a white man, in his 30s, dark shaved hair, heavy build, with a Scottish or Irish accent. Not knowing where he was, the man then flagged down a couple in a car and they took him to Paisley Police Office. Detective Sergeant Allison Campbell, Paisley Police Office, said: “The man and woman left before we could speak to them. It would be really helpful to our investigation if they would contact Paisley Police Station as their information would assist our investigation. “I would ask anyone who might have seen or was approached by the man in Paisley this morning to get in touch. Please call Paisley Police Station via 101 and quote reference number 1271/28/10.”
