Cops hunt for Paddington train groping pervert

Detectives release image of passenger they would like to speak to

DETECTIVES have released an image of a man they would like to speak to after a woman was groped on a train.

The 55-year-old victim boarded the train at Paddington Station on January 29 this year, when the pervert struck.

At around 5.45pm a man sat next to her and began asking her personal question before touching her leg.

He then tried to grab her a further three times.

He skulked away into another carriage after the woman stood up and shouted at him, before fleeing at Ealing Broadway Station.

Detective Constable Steve Reay, investigating officer, said: “The behaviour of this man was completely unacceptable. The victim was left shaken and made to feel very uncomfortable by his behaviour.
