One of the suspects is described as white, 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall, aged around 17 or 18-years-old and was of a medium build. He was wearing a dark hooded top with the hood up and had a round face. The second suspect was white; around 5ft 5ins tall, aged around 14 or 15 and had scruffy, short fair hair. There were two other men at the scene but the victim was unable to give a description of them.

Dc Ferguson added: “The victim has mentioned that there were three other young people in the area at the time and I am appealing for them to come forward as they may be able to assist with this investigation. The exact location of the incident was next to the brook on the cycle pathway.”
