Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually harassed and touched inappropriately at a railway station.
The incident happened at Troedyrhiw railway station near Merthyr at around 9.40pm on Monday, 10th August.
Police say the victim was approached by a man who made a number of sexually explicit comments and she immediately walked away but the man followed.
She continued to try getting away from him but he followed her into a shelter where he grabbed her waist and tried kissing her.
At this stage, the victim pushed him away and the man finally walked off and left the station.
This was, quite clearly, a traumatic incident for the victim, who was alone at the time and was left extremely disturbed and frightened by the man’s actions.
British Transport Police says the man is white, around 5ft 11in, in his early 20s, of slim build, and we believe he may possibly be known as Dan.
Anyone with information is asked to call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference WSUB/B7 of 09/09/2015.

A man from the Valleys employed a unique way of proposing to his girlfriend - by recruiting stars of the Welsh national football team to help.
Matthew Davies from Aberdare arranged the film after speaking to a friend who worked at the Football Association of Wales.
Both Matthew and his partner Vicky Griffiths are footy mad, with Vicky a big fan of Swansea City.
The pair met five years again when Matthew, himself a supporter of local side Merthyr Town, began following the national side to home and away games.
In fact the couple's first trip abroad together was to Switzerland in 2010, where they saw Wales fall to a disappointing 4-1 defeat in a Euro 2012 qualifier.
But with the national side on the up and so close to securing their place in Euro 2016, Matthew has seized the opportunity to score a blinder himself.
And in case you were wondering...Vicky said yes.
"So I just asked Vicky whether she would marry me. But being a footy nut as well I showed her this video on my phone of me and my pals. Would they persuade her to say yes?........Yes it worked"
