A man from Colchester who befriended and sexually abused a young child has been jailed for seven years.
CCTV Released After Essex Train Assault
British Transport Police is looking for a man after two women were assaulted on a busy train between Liverpool Street and Bishop's Stortford earlier this month.
The incidents happened on-board the same train on Wednesday November 9th, between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
During the journey the man, described as being white and aged between 30 and 39 years, assaulted two women using the busy nature of the train to mask the crimes.
Detective Constable Gerry Hughes, investigating for BTP, says: "On both occasions - within minutes of each other - the man sat next to or near the victims and, as the journey progressed, assaulted them before making his excuses and moving away.
"Thankfully the victims, a 44-year-old woman and a 38-year-old woman, were not physically injured during the incidents, but they are traumatised by the experience and are still trying to come to terms with what happened.
"We are currently working to trace the man responsible and are exploring all possible avenues and seeking to exploit all opportunities for evidence.
"But we need help from the public to bring the offender to justice."
If you have information you can call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
In all calls please quote incident B16/LNA of 18/11/2011.
