A 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted on a Tube train by a man who started harassing her and trying to get her Snapchat contact.
When the schoolgirl tried to get away from the suspect he followed her towards the train door and said he wanted to ‘chill’ with her before sexually assaulting the child.
The girl was going home on the Underground just after 7pm on September 18 when a man got on at Wembley Park in north west London and sat next to her.
He soon asked the youngster her age and when she told him she was 14, he started asking for her Snapchat username so he could contact her on social media.
