Police are appealing for information after a teenager was raped in a wooded area of South Lanarkshire.
The girl was with friends in the woods near Bothwell Castle between 5.45pm and 7.30pm on Wednesday.
After breaking away from them and being on her own, she was approached by a man who then raped her.
The man is described as white, in his 20s, with a slim build and shaved head and was wearing a red T-shirt and blue shorts.
He was riding a black mountain bike with green neon writing on the frame and tyre which was also fitted with mud guards to the front and rear wheels.
Officers are still gathering CCTV footage but have appealed for information on the incident or suspect with a “fairly distinctive” bike.
Detective Inspector David Lamont said: “I am appealing to members of the public who may have been in the area around the relevant time on Wednesday night to think back and consider if they saw this man.
“The bike was fairly distinctive in colour so you may remember seeing it.
“If you have any information regarding the incident, the suspect or the bike, please pass your information on.
“Any small detail could prove vital as we piece together the circumstances of what has happened.
“I’m aware that local people will be concerned by this incident and I would like to assure them that additional patrols are in the area to offer reassurance and anyone with concerns can approach these officers.”
Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at Blantyre Police Station via 101, quoting incident number 1806 of May 21, 2020, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
