Detectives from British Transport Police are appealing for information following a sexual assault on a train between Sheffield and Leicester. 

At approximately 9am on 30 December a 17-year-old woman was on board an East Midlands Trains service when a man sat next to her. 

The man touched the girl inappropriately whilst exposing himself. He then stood up and walked away. It is believed he left the service at either Leicester or Loughborough. 

Police were called and met the victim on board the train, however the man had left. 

Officers would now like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV images, as they may have information which could help the investigation.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 150 of 30/12/2018. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
