A teenager from Queens Park who sexually assaulting a woman at Kensal Rise train station has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Fahim Shahhriya, of Ilbert Street, crept up behind the 28-year-old victim, who lives in Willesden, and indecently touched her as she left the station on December 5 last year.
The 19-year-old was subsequently arrested and charged after the Times circulated a CCTV image of him in connection with the incident.
Last month at Harrow Crow Court he denied any wrong doing but was convicted of sexual assault.
He was sentenced last week to eight months in jail suspended for two years, ordered to pay £300 compensation and a victim surcharge of £100.

DC Rory Durant, investigating officer, said: “Thanks to the assistance from the public and local media, we were able to identify Shahriya and swiftly arrest him.
“We do not tolerate unwanted sexual behaviour of any kind on the transport network and take all reports seriously. With excellent CCTV available on board trains and at stations, we will do all we can to bring those who cause distress to other passengers to justice.
