“A woman was subjected to an alleged sexual assault as she disembarked from a train at Truro station at about 8.05pm on Saturday, 28 June.
At this stage, I am appealing for any witnesses who were on the platform or who were alighting the train at the time of the incident, to come forward and make contact with British Transport Police.
