Youth sought over train sex assault at Uphall


A youth who sexually assaulted a woman as she was boarding a train in West Lothian is being sought by police.

The 45-year-old was boarding the 06.54 service to Edinburgh Waverley at Uphall just before 07:00am on Saturday when she was touched from behind.

British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information.

Officers investigating are reviewing CCTV from the train and the station. The youth is between 15 and 18 years old, slim and has brown hair.

He was wearing a blue t-shirt.

Det Con Paul Farquhar, of the British transport Police, said: "This assault left the victim upset and I am hopeful that anyone who was at the station or on the train and has information which can identify those involved will feel able to get in touch."
