British Transport Police officers are appealing for witnesses to a sexual assault on board a train traveling from Glasgow Queen Street to Falkirk High station on 2 September. 

Shortly after 9pm, a man boarded the train and sat diagonally across from a woman in her early twenties. 

After attempting to start a conversation with her several times, he leant over and grabbed her, before kissing her without permission.

This left the victim feeling threatened and uncomfortable. 

The man – who left the train at Falkirk High station – was described as being white and approximately 5 ft 11 ins tall. He was wearing a pink polo shirt and dark jeans. 

Were you on the train? Did you see anything? Please call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 - quoting 267 of 4 September - if you have any information which could help the investigation. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
