The assault took place at about 01:00 on Tuesday 10 March as the 21-year-old walked with a man along Dundee Street, near the Kwik-Fit garage.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to a female cyclist who intervened.

The suspect is described as a Spanish man in his early 20s, of medium build, with short dark hair.

He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a prominent design on the chest.
