Police believe one man is responsible for sexually assaulting two women within 20 minutes in the west end of Glasgow on Friday morning.

In the first incident, a 57-year-old woman was assaulted in Ascot Court near Anniesland Cross at about 1055 GMT.

A 25-year-old woman was attacked on Crow Road at about 1115 GMT. The man then followed her towards Jordanhill train station but she got home safely.

Neither women required hospital treatment but were extremely shaken.

Officers said they are looking for a white man in his mid to late 20s. He is described as 6ft tall and of slim build and was wearing a three-quarter length dark coloured coat with a hood, dark trousers and light coloured boots.

He was said to be politely spoken and was carrying a blue plastic bag.

Strathclyde Police were examining CCTV footage from the area in an effort to identify the suspect.

Det Sgt mark Sutherland at West End Police Office said: "I am keen to speak to anyone who was in and around the Anniesland Cross or Jordanhill areas on Friday morning who may have witnessed the incidents.

"I would also urge any women, who may have been approached by the suspect, or anyone who recognises his description to contact the police as a matter of urgency."
