An investigation has been launched after a “serious sexual assault” was reported to police in Dundee.
Officers have been carrying out inquiries following an incident in Morgan Street in the early hours of Saturday morning.
A police presence remains at the scene and there will continue to be as the investigation continues and more “high visibility patrols” have been deployed to the Stobswell area.
A woman in her thirties was left uninjured after the attack but is receiving support from specially trained officers.
Police want to speak to a man aged between 30 and 40-years old in connection with the incident who “may have valuable information”.
He is described as white, around 5ft 11in of thin build with light brown hair and stubble and who spoke with a Scottish accent.
At the time he was wearing a dark blue jacket, dark “hoodie” and light coloured jogging bottoms.
The man could also have used, or been dropped off by, a small, dark coloured vehicle.
Detective Inspector Ray Birnie, of Tayside Division’s CID, said: “We have received a report of a serious sexual assault which occurred within a property in Morgan Street.
“Inquiries are ongoing into the incident and I would like to appeal to the public to come forward if they have information that which assist us.
“If anyone recalls hearing anything or seeing anything in the Morgan Street area, including any vehicles, between 2 and 4am on Saturday morning then I would ask them to contact us.
“The female victim was not physically injured, however she has obviously been left very upset and distressed by the incident.
“There has been an ongoing police activity at the address and there will be additional high visibility patrols in the area for the time being.
“I would like to thank the local community for their patience whilst we deal with this incident and again ask that if they have any information that could assist us to please come forward.”
