A man exposed himself to a woman on board a Great Western Railway service to Maidenhead. Can you help officers trace a man who is wanted in connection? 

The incident happened at approximately 10.20am on Sunday 14 January. The victim was seated and a man approached her and sat opposite shortly after departing Twyford station. He then exposed and touched himself inappropriately whilst staring at her. 

When the victim – a 27-year-old woman – challenged the man, he told her to “shhhh”. She then reported this to BTP by sending a text to our discreet reporting service text 61016. Officers are now investigating and are releasing CCTV images of a man they’d like to speak with in connection.

Investigating officer PC Charlotte Collins, said: “If you recognise the man in the CCTV then please get in touch as I am sure he has essential information which could help us investigate.

“This was a distressing ordeal for this victim who was very intimidated by this man’s sexual behaviour. We will not tolerate unwanted sexual advances and I am grateful to this victim for reporting this incident to police by texting us.”

Anyone with any information can contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or call 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 331 of 28/02/2017. Alternatively, you can pass information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
