Detectives release image of man they would like to speak to
The hunt is on to find a pervert who indecently assaulted a woman at Willesden Junction station.
The 29-year-old victim was walking down the stairs leading to platform three when a man approached her from behind and began to touch her inappropriately.
He continued until they both arrived at the platform and then he disappeared from her sight.
Officers from British Transport Police (BTP) have trawled through CCTV footage and have released the image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident which happened on February 16 at around 7pm.
Detective Sergeant Tony Gittins, the investigating officer, said: “This was an intimidating incident for the victim, who was alone at the time, and which caused her great distress.
“These kinds of sexual assaults are extremely rare on the rail network and, when we do receive reports of this nature, we take very seriously.
