Images have been released of two men wanted in connection with sexual assaults on two women that happened on the same day and involving trains in and out of Peterborough.

British Transport launched an investigation following reports of incidents that happened on July 4.

The first incident happened at 7pm on a service between Birmingham to Peterborough. The second incident happened on the same day at 7.40pm on a service between Peterborough and Nottingham.

The first victim, a 39-year-old, woman was travelling on board the Birmingham New Street to Stanstead Airport Cross County train service. She became aware of two men.

One of the men sat next to her and asked her to kiss him, which she declined.

The man proceeded to stroke the woman’s right arm and then pull her top down. He then leered down her top and touched her inappropriately, before thanking her and leaving the train at Peterborough.

The second incident happened on the Norwich to Nottingham train and as the train left Peterborough a man, who is believed to be the same man as in the previous incident, boarded the train.

He sat next to the second woman, a 20-year-old, and kissed her left cheek. The man then bit the woman’s cheek before leaving the train at Grantham.

Officers have now released images of two men they wish to speak to in connection with both incidents. Officers believe that the two men may have information which could help the investigation.

They are also keen to hear from anyone who may have been travelling on the services and witnessed either incident.

Anyone with any information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 270 09/08/2017.
