Police hunt stranger who massaged woman's foot in sexual assault

POLICE are investigating after a man began massaging a woman’s foot on a train travelling between Stratford and Shirley.

CCTV images have been released in an appeal to speak to a man in connection with the sexual assault which happened on October 13, last year.

The victim was approached by a passenger who started speaking to her about her shoes.

He then leaned over and started squeezing her shoe before taking it off and massaging her foot.

The victim moved her foot away before the man got off the train.

Anyone who may recognise the man in the images should contact the British Transport Police by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 302 of 13/10/20.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be called on 0800 555 111 anonymously.
