Girl forced into car and attacked

A teenager has been forced into a car and sexually assaulted in Clackmannanshire, police said.

The 14-year-old girl was walking to school, along High Street and Hillfoots Road in Dollar at about 0820 BST, when she was approached by a man.

After the attack, she flagged down a passing motorist who raised the alarm.

The man is described as about 5ft 8in tall, in his mid-30s, with receding brown hair and bad skin. The car is green and is thought to be a four-door.

Central Scotland Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

Det Insp Ronnie Isles said: "The girl was indecently assaulted and then ordered out of the car which was parked in a farm track just off the B910 in an area near to Linn Mill - near to the A977 Kinross to Gartarry Road.

"She flagged down a passing motorist on the B910 who raised the alarm.

"The young girl is obviously distressed and we have specialist officers working with her."

Det Insp Isles said these type of incidents were "extremely rare".
