On 30 January on the 8.39pm train from Redhill to London Bridge, a man was reported to have sat opposite a woman in an otherwise empty carriage and began touching himself inappropriately while looking at her.
He was confronted by an off duty officer as he left the train at Coulsdon South station. He then assaulted her as she tried to detain him, before jumping over the ticket barriers and leaving the station.
The officer attended hospital and fortunately wasn’t seriously injured.
Following a number of enquiries, the man is believed to be linked to a number of other outraging public decency incidents on the railway.
Officers believe the man in the CCTV image may have information which could help their investigation.
