Detectives are investigating an attack on a 32-year-old woman that took place in the area of Dickson Road and Springfield Road.
The woman was left with injuries to her face and body after being assaulted by a man at around 2.20am.
A police cordon was in place around the area yesterday while investigations took place.
Owner of nearby cabaret bar Funny Girls, on Dickson Road, Basil Newby said his staff were asked by police for CCTV footage of the area.
He said: “I arrived in the morning, saw the police cordon and thought someone had broken in.
“It was all a bit strange. I believe it was something that happened down the side of the building.”
The venue was closed at the time and is not believed to be part of the police investigation.
Detectives are studying CCTV footage from the area at the time and anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
