Do you know who this man is? Officers would like to speak with him after a 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at Southport station. 

The assault happened at approximately 8pm on 3 December. The victim was on a platform at the station when a man approached her. 

He started speaking to the girl in Spanish, and then suddenly switched to English with a Scottish accent. The girl, not interested in the man, then went to board a train. The man approached her, stroked her face and then touched her inappropriately. 

The suspect then joined a train to Wigan and is believed to have visited three pubs in Wigan, Harrys Bar, The Dog and Partridge and The Berkley. 

Anyone with any information is asked to get in touch by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 503 of 03/12/2017. Alternatively, ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
