The incident happened just after 2.30pm on Wednesday 8 October.

The victim, a 21-year-old woman, boarded a train at Elephant & Castle station to travel to Oxford Circus.

Investigating officer PC Eric Anang said: “We believe the man in the image may hold vital information to our investigation.

"I am now appealing to members of the public to help identify him. Also, if you were on the train at the time of the incident and witnessed the assault, please get in touch with BTP.”
