Police release CCTV image after man indecently exposes himself on Waterloo-Earlsfield Train
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for information after
a man indecently exposed himself on a train between Waterloo and Earlsfield.
Officers have also released CCTV images of a man they want to identify and talk to in connection with the incident, which took place on Tuesday 21st February.
Around 2.45pm, the 21-year-old victim, from New Malden, felt someone tap her seat from behind in a bid to get her attention
but when she turned around she noticed that a
man had exposed himself and was touching himself indecently.
The man, who boarded the train at Waterloo, is thought to
have left the service at Earlsfield.
The CCTV images have been circulated on police intelligence
systems and to local Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhood
teams but to no avail so far.
PC Mark Payne, the investigating officer, said: “This was an
understandably upsetting experience for the victim and
we’ll do all we can to catch the person responsible.
“It was difficult to identify a suspect from the initial CCTV footage we gathered but
we’ve now obtained enhanced images and want the public’s help to identify this man.
“The images are very clear and I’m certain someone will recognise him. If you think
you can name this man, or have any information that could assist our investigation,
please get in touch.”
Anyone with information about the incident should contact BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40
quoting reference B5/LSA of 27/04/12.
Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
