CTV appeal after woman touched indecently on Lincoln train

Train groping: Detectives from British Transport Police appealing for information after a woman was touched indecently on a train.

Detectives from British Transport Police (BTP) have released images of a man they believe can assist their enquiries after after a woman was touched indecently on a train between Newark and Lincoln.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman from Newark, was travelling on a train between Newark and Lincoln around 10pm on June 23. A man then moved from another part of the train and went to sit behind the victim.

He then reached between the seats and touched the victim in an indecent manner. The man is then thought to have left the service at Lincoln

Detective Constable Andrew Lehman, investigating the incident, said: “The CCTV images are very clear and I’m sure someone will recognise the man pictured.

“We would like to speak to him in connection with this incident and I would encourage anyone who knows the man, or his whereabouts, to get in touch.

“The man’s behaviour was entirely inappropriate, leaving the victim feeling understandably shaken, and we will do everything we can to catch the person responsible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting B7/NEA of 26/11/12. Alternatively call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
