Police are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at a Metro station in North Tyneside.
The girl was with her friend when she was approached by a man at the Whitley Bay station, at 11.30pm on August 28. She was groped after the man engaged both girls in conversation.
The man then got on the Metro with them before taking the same replacement bus service and leaving in the Palmersville area of North Tyneside.

The man pictured was in the area at the time. If you recognise the man or are a witness yourself, you are asked to contact police on 101.
Police are advising residents to 'be on their guard' following a distraction burglary in Longbenton.
A man knocked at the home of an older North Tyneside resident on October 15, at around 3pm. He gave an excuse to be asked inside. Once indoors, he asked the resident to make him a cup of tea, when she was distracted doing this, he entered the bedroom and stole money from her handbag. He then left.
Police are carrying out enquiries in the area and additional officers are on patrol to reassure the community.
We want to remind residents that callers who turn-up unannounced, whether they're claiming to be carrying out work or selling something, should always be treated with caution. Genuine callers will not mind being asked to come back at a different time so their identification can be checked or while arrangements are made for a relative or friend to be present when they return.
We always advise people not to let strangers into their home. If they are in any doubt close the door and contact police.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.

ITV News Tyne Tees has learned that three councils in the North East will join together to do their own devolution deal with Westminster and make the most of promised funding.
Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland - the three areas that voted for a devolution deal - are believed to have got together and negotiations are now underway with the government over forming their own separate deal.
"This is great news for the North East. We have been extremely pleased to see this new devolution deal taking shape which will help ensure the North East finally gets the powers and investment it deserves. The old model of running the North East from London simply no longer works. It will take brave leadership to forge this new deal but it is the only way to stop our region being left behind. This is good news for jobs and investment in Northumberland, North Tyneside and Newcastle."
Policy North, an independent think thank based in the North East, has described a revised devolution deal north of the Tyne as great news for the region.
