She was wearing a dark top and dark jeans.Detective Constable Kieran Bradshaw, Maryhill CID, said: "From our enquiries so far, we know that the two suspects got in to a car in Shakespeare Street and then drove off after the assault."We also believe that there may have been some sort of altercation between the man and the two suspects a short time before the attack.”"We are particularly keen to obtain any dash-cam footage from cars passing around that time. Garrioch Road can be a busy road with people travelling from the West End to Maryhill, so it's possible cars passing may have captured footage that may help our enquiry."
