Main article content
British Transport Police officers are appealing for the victim or witnesses to an incident of a sexual nature to contact them.
On Sunday 9 July, between 7.50am and 8.25am, a passenger on board a train from Doncaster was approached by a distraught young woman who explained that she believed another passenger had been staring and grinning at her while masturbating. She had recorded what happened with her phone and showed the passenger who confirmed this.
Both the victim and offender boarded the service at Doncaster and left at Scunthorpe.
Investigating officer PC Fran Hewlett said: “The passenger, concerned for the victim, reported what happened to us but we would like to hear from the victim herself or anyone else who witnessed the incident.
“All victims of sexual offences are given full anonymity and will be supported by specially trained police officers.
“If you witnessed this incident or if it happened to you, please do contact us and our officers will be able to help.”
Please contact British Transport Police by calling 0800 40 50 40, or by texting 61016 with the reference 2300088256.
