Officers are appealing for help to find a young woman, who is believed to have been sexually assaulted at Linlithgow rail station.

The plea comes after a third party called police and reported seeing a man touch the woman inappropriately at around 1.15pm on 20 April.

She is described as being in her late teens and she was with a friend at the time, who is also thought to be around the same age.

A 38-year-old man from Fife was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault in connection with the incident and was later released without charge.

DC Donna Davanna from BTP said: “This incident was reported to us several hours after it took place, meaning we were unable to attend to take any details from the alleged victim or her friend.

“Other enquiries led to the arrest of a man, however we could really do with hearing from these two women so we can establish exactly what has happened.

“I’d urge them, or anyone who knows who they might be, to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, reference 281 of 20/04/19. Alternatively, details can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
