Police have released CCTV images of a car they want to trace after a woman was raped in Glasgow.

The woman was attacked at about 00:05 on Monday, near to Eastwood Crescent in Thornliebank.

The car in the police images is a light-coloured, possibly silver, Ford Fiesta.

Its driver was described as being of either Asian or Eastern European appearance, aged between 30 and 40, with dark hair and eyes.

He was wearing a dark-coloured T-shirt.

The car was seen in Kilmarnock Road, Shawlands, shortly before the attack. Two 18-year-old women are thought to have got into it in the early hours of Monday before it was later spotted on Carnwadric Road, Thornliebank.
