Man exposes himself to woman and two year old in SE #London
British Transport Police officers are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to a woman travelling with her two-year-old niece on a train between Woolwich Dockyard and Charlton, south-east London.
Investigators have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident, which took place around 2.20pm on Sunday, 11 March.
The 35-year-old victim was travelling with her two-year-old niece on a Plumstead to London Bridge service when she noticed that a man was staring at her, making her feel uneasy.
Shortly after the service left Woolwich Dockyard, the victim got up from her seat but immediately noticed that the man had exposed himself.
The victim was initially shocked but then became angry, confronting the man and asking him what he thought he was doing by exposing himself in the presence of a two-year-old.
When she threatened to call police the man swore at her and left the train at Charlton.
PC Alex O’Leary, the investigating officer, said: “This shocking incident quite understandably left the victim outraged and sickened.
“It’s unclear why the man felt the need to act this way in front of the woman and her niece but we’ll do everything we can to identify him.
“The CCTV images we’ve been able to retrieve are very clear and I am certain someone will recognise this man. If you do, please come forward and talk to us.”
