Police appeal over sexual assault of teen

CCTV: Do you know this man?

BRITISH TRANSPORT police are appealing for information after a teenage girl was sexually assaulted on a train between Bognor Regis and Barnham in West Sussex.

During the journey, officers have said that the suspect tried to strike up a conversation with the 18-year-old victim before he attempted to kiss her and touch her indecently.

Investigators have now issued a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident, which took place at around 8pm on Thursday March 15.

Detective Constable Vanessa Cottington, the investigating officer, said: “This man’s actions left the victim intimidated and very distressed and we’ll do everything we can to catch him.

“Offences like this are rare on the rail network but we treat them very seriously. If you recognise the man pictured in the CCTV image, we want to hear from you," she added.

Anyone with information should contact BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B7/LSA of 25/04/12. Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
