Man found not guilty following appeal – London

Last year, officers from British Transport Police appealed for information in tracing a man wanted in connection to a sexual offence. 

The charge related to an incident on board a train between Twickenham and Richmond on 1 November 2016 where a 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted.

Tasim Qinami, aged 19 and of no fixed address, was due to appear before Blackfriars Crown Court on June 28 this year charged with one count of sexual assault.

Qinami failed to appear at court and a warrant for his arrest was issued. 

On 11 December, Qinami appeared before Blackfriars Crown Court where he was found not guilty of the offence. 

The media and public and thanked for their help in sharing this appeal. We now ask that any associated images are removed from publication.
