Detectives investigating a sexual assault at Rainham station in Essex are today releasing CCTV images in connection. 

At approximately 7.30pm on 14 August, a woman in her late teens was sat on a wall outside the station when she was approached by an unknown man. 

The man initially asked the victim for directions, but he then began hassling the victim asking her for personal information and saying she was beautiful. 

He then forcibly hugged and kissed the woman, holding onto to her tightly. He also touched himself inappropriately in front of the victim. 

This was a frightening experience for the victim who was left traumatised by this man’s invasive and inappropriate behaviour. 

Officers believe the man shown in this CCTV image may have information which could help them investigate. 

If you know who he is then contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 172 of 13/11/2018. 

Or you can ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
