There out and about!!!!!!
At about 3pm on Sunday, 1 July 2012, the 23-year-old victim was walking in the Ramsay Street area when she was approached by the two men.
They then dragged her down a side street, Garden Lane, where they both sexually assaulted her.
The victim is now being supported by specially-trained officers.
The offenders are both described as Asian, in their mid 20s and about 5ft 6in tall. One had dark flat hair, stuck to his head, was clean shaven, wearing a black hoodie, dark track suit bottoms. He had dark brown eyes, dark eyebrows, a pointy nose, a deep voice, and a local accent.
The other offender had short spiky hair clean shaven and wearing a dark hoody, jeans.
Detective Inspector Debbie Dooley, of the Serious Sexual Offences Unit, said: “This was a most distressing incident in which a young woman has been subjected to a horrible ordeal.
“It is quite right that all communities are appalled by such an attack and I want to reassure both the victim and residents that we are doing all we can to bring the offenders to justice.
“Given this happened mid afternoon I am confident that someone would have either seen what happened or at least got a good look at the attackers.
“Can I ask that people recall where they were on Sunday afternoon and whether they saw anything out of the ordinary.
“Whilst this is a worrying incident, we are treating it as an isolated one. There is a police pod in the area overnight and anyone with concerns can approach a police officer and speak to them.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Serious Sexual Offences Unit on 0161 856 1812 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
