British Transport Police are trying to find a man who performed an indecent act on train whilst staring at a female passenger.

The victim, a 19-year-old woman from Leeds, boarded the 10.35am Leeds to Manchester Piccadilly service at Leeds on Sunday February 7.

When she sat down she noticed a man across from her began to stare at her then performed an indecent act.

When she left the service at Huddersfield, the man closely followed her through the station, across St Georges Square, and down an adjacent street before she arrived at her workplace and went inside.

PC Jack Hakin said: “This was understandably an unpleasant and unnerving experience for the victim. Nobody travelling on the railway should have to put up with this type of behaviour and we’re determined to find the man responsible.”

“We believe the man captured on the on board CCTV can help us with our enquiry. If you think you can name him, or if you have any information to help our investigation, we’d urge anyone to get in touch.”
