British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for the public’s help after a woman was assaulted at Shotton Low Level railway station.
Transport Police have released a CCTV image of a man they believe may have key information which could assist their investigation.
PC Kevin Thomas, who is investigating the incident, said:
“The victim, a 52-year-old woman, got off a train at Shotton Low Level station. As she approached the stairs to the footbridge, she was assaulted by a man.
“Following the incident, he made off over the bridge towards Shotton High Level.
“This was understandably a distressing experience for the victim. Assaults of this nature are extremely rare on the rail network but, when they do occur, we will do all we can to track down those responsible.
“I am now calling on the public to help bring this individual to justice.”
Officers have identified a person they would like to speak to in connection with the incident, which took place around 5.15pm on Friday, 13 June.
He is described as white, in his late 20s with short, dark brown hair, and was wearing a blue T-shirt and jeans.
“We are anxious to speak to this individual as we believe he may have key information that could assist us,” said PC Thomas.
“If you recognise the man pictured, or have any information about the incident, I would urge you to please come forward and talk to us. Your information could be vital to this investigation.”
