Girl, 16, raped by two men in woods before passing driver finds her on road

A 16-year-old girl was raped by two men in a wooded area in a “terrifying ordeal” – with police now hunting the suspects.

The victim was targeted by two men behind Paisley’s Dykebar Hospital in Scotland, just off Grahamston Road.

She was later found by a passing motorist on Hurlet Road on Saturday, March 20.

The attack took place between 7pm and 9.30pm, with police appealing for CCTV or dashcam footage from the area.

The two male suspects are described as white, Scottish, aged in their early 20s, the Daily Record reports.

One man was around 5ft 9in, while the other was around 6ft. Both were wearing dark clothing.

Detective Inspector Colin MacRitchie said: "This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim and we are doing everything we can to provide her with all the necessary support she requires at this time.

"Officers have been searching the woods and Grahamston Road area, checking CCTV and carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the surrounding area since this was reported.

"I am appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen anything suspicious or men matching this description to come forward. Do you live nearby and have CCTV?

“Were you driving and have a dash-cam? If so, please check back and see if there is any footage that could assist our investigation.”

"It does not matter if you think your information is small or minor – it could be just the detail we are looking for to help build a bigger picture of the circumstances.”

Det Insp MacRitchie said a “highly visible” police presence is now operating in the area while the investigation continues.
