Aberdeen police are appealing for information following an indecent assault in the George Street area during the early hours of yesterday morning.
The incident took place at around 12.45am on George Street, between the St Andrew’s Street and John Street junctions.
A number of people were in the area at the time and police are keen to speak to people who helped the woman immediately after the incident.
Detective Inspector David Howieson said: “This is a very concerning incident and we are working hard to trace the man responsible.
“While thankfully the victim was not injured, she has understandably been left shaken by this incident and I want to praise her quick actions in gaining help.
“A number of people helped the woman after the incident and we believe a group of three men walking in the John Street and George Street area may have witnessed the assault.
“They may have left the Mither Tap pub a short time earlier and I would urge them to come forward and speak to us.
“Additionally, we are aware that a young man walking on George Street wearing headphones waited with the victim, and his father gave her a lift home in a white or light-coloured car.
“These witnesses also helped the woman look for her personal belongings that were dropped.
“I would urge these witnesses to come forward and speak to us as they may have information that is vital to our investigation. Our investigation is ongoing and we are following a positive line of inquiry.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101, quoting incident 341 of 11 August 2018.
