British Transport Police detectives are appealing for the public’s help in finding a man wanted in connection with sexual assaults on trains between Romford and Liverpool Street.
The first incident was reported on October 5 last year whilst on board the 9.21am service travelling between Romford and Liverpool Street.
A man sat next to a woman in her 20s and touched her inappropriately three times during the journey.
Despite several extensive enquiries, the man was never traced.
Then, on January 9 this year whilst on board the 7.34pm service travelling between Liverpool Street and Romford, a man touched another woman in her 30s inappropriately.
