Officers investigating an assault on a 16 year-old girl at Abercynon rail station have released CCTV images of a woman they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Investigating officer PC Ian Brinkworth said: "The victim-a 16 year-old girl from Pontypridd- was waiting for a train with her friend when she was approached by a woman, who subsequently subjected her to a series of threats and verbal abuse.

"A few minutes later her train arrived and the victim boarded. However, she was followed by the woman, who forced her way past the train guard and punched the victim to the side of her face before leaving the train just prior to its departure."
