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.
Detectives now believe that both sexual assaults are linked.
They would like to speak to the man in this image as they believe he may have information which could help the investigation.
Det Con Tim Barnes said: “Unwanted sexual behaviour such as this is disgraceful and we’re working hard to trace the man responsible for these assaults.
“Acts like this will never be tolerated on the railway and everyone has the right to travel on the rail network work without fear or intimidation.
Information can be sent to BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 157 of 01/05/2018. Or, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
