We’re appealing for information after an assault on board a train travelling between Partick and Glasgow Central, in which a man assaulted a teenage girl.

At around 7.20pm on Wednesday 26 April, a man boarded the train at Partick. He was wearing a business suit.

A group of three teenagers were on the train and are believed to have played a prank on the man, by locking him out of the coach. When he gained entry, the man kicked one of the teenagers and then grabbed her legs and pulled her off the seat.

The man then took her shoe off and threw it in her face, before a member of the public stepped in to stop the altercation.

The man was white and around 5ft 10ins, around 50-years-old and was wearing glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, with reference number 492 of 26 April.
