Speaking about the attack, Detective Sgt, Euan Keil said: “The woman was making her way to the toilets when she was grabbed by one man and pulled to the rear of the toilet block where another man sexually assaulted her. Her attackers fled when they were disturbed by three men who were walking by the area and who shouted at them.
“I don’t think the three men realised what was actually going on or that their intervention probably stopped this attack from escalating. It is important that we trace them as what they saw could prove vital to us catching the two men responsible.”
