Police appealing after a serious sexual assault in Saltcoats


Police Scotland is appealing for information from the public after a 24 year-old woman was the subject of a serious sexual assault in Saltcoats.

The incident happened on the shore front of Winton Circus shortly after midnight on Monday 23 July 2018.

The suspect is described as being a man of medium height and build who was wearing a dark coloured short sleeved t-shirt and a dark coloured baseball cap.

Detective Inspector Mick Carr, Saltcoats CID, said:

“We are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the area, or were passing by during the time of the attack.

“We know there were people fishing on the shore front, they may have vital information that can help us. Did you see or hear anything out of the ordinary?

“We are also looking for the owner or driver of a silver Volkswagen Transporter that was parked nearby.”

Anyone with information should contact Saltcoats CID via 101, quoting incident number 0191 of Monday 23 July 2018. Alternatively you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
