British Transport Police this morning released an appeal to identify a suspect of the sexual assault.

The woman had got off a Piccadilly line train at about 5.10am. She realised she had got off at the wrong station, so she sat towards the front end of the platform as she waited for the next train.

She fell asleep and woke up to find a man kissing her. She pushed him away and the man boarded a Victoria Line northbound train.

The incident happened at about 5.13am.

A British Transport Police spokesperson said: “Officers would now like to speak to this man in the CCTV image, who they believe may have information that could help with the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016 citing reference 97 of January 21.
