DETECTIVES are appealing for information after a teenager was sexually assaulted on a train travelling towards Gunnersbury.
British Transport Police have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident which took place on Tuesday June 23.
A 16-year-old girl got on the train at Brondesbury, Kilburn, and sat opposite a man who was already on board.
During the journey, between 9:50am and 10:10am, the man touched the girl inappropriately, and the distressed teenager left the train at Gunnersbury station. The man then followed her off the train into the waiting room and tried to speak to her before leaving.
BTP Detective Constable Vicki Bladen, said: "Detectives have made local inquiries and reviewed CCTV and are now asking for help from the public to identify the man pictured.
"I would urge anyone who recognises this man, or knows anything about what happened, to come forward and contact us. The man police would like to speak to is Asian and aged in his 40s. He is described as unshaven with black hair and dark eyes."
Anyone with information about the incident or the man in the CCTV images should contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40, quoting incident number 225 of 23.6.09 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
