Pair arrested over Clackmannan sexual assault

Two men have been arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Clackmannanshire on Monday.

Police said the alleged attack on a female took place late in the evening near Clackmannan, in an area known as Mary Woods.

The woods were cordoned off for much of the day on Tuesday while forensic teams examined the scene.

The men, who are aged 23 and 25, have not been named by police. A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.

It is understood that police are not linking the incident with the other recent alleged sexual assaults in the county, which took place in Menstrie and Dollar.
