– PC Tahira Bibi, British Transport Police
The victim was sat on the train when a man came and sat next to her. The man then inappropriately touched her then exposed himself. This was an extremely distressing experience for the victim, and we are determined to catch the man responsible. The man we would like to trace has been described as Asian, 5ft10, approximately 20 years of age and of a slim build. He was wearing a short sleeved red checked shirt and carrying a rucksack. We believe that the man may have then travelled onto Bradford.
British Transport Police is appealing for information after a 19-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on a train travelling between Stalybridge and Leeds on Thursday, 23 August 2012. Officers would like to speak to this man in connection with the incident, which took place at roughly 5:30pm.
Officers say the victim from Leeds was travelling on the 17.11 Manchester Piccadilly to Scarborough service when she was assaulted.
