DETECTIVES investigating a ‘serious’ attempted sex assault at Solihull railway station have released security images of a man who they say could help enquiries.

As reported in the Observer, British Transport Police has said that on March 10 between 12.20pm and 12.30pm, a woman entered the ladies’ toilets on platform one at Solihull station.

A man followed her into the toilets and pushed her from behind into one of the cubicles.

He grabbed her and demanded sex. The woman fought back, and the man left the toilet when she threatened to call the police.

Officers believe the man in the CCTV images may have information which could help in their investigation.

A spokeswoman for the force said members of the public who recognise the man should contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 239 of 10/03/20, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
