British Transport Police Officers are investigating a sexual assault on-board a service travelling between Liverpool Lime Street and Blackpool North stations and have today (Wednesday 11th August) released images in connection with the assault.
At just after 8.00 p.m. on Sunday 8 July, a group of teenage girls were travelling back from a day of shopping in Liverpool.
While waiting on the platform for the train, a group of men were looking in their direction and winking.
Both groups then boarded a train heading to Blackpool North railway station. On the train the men started threatening the group of young girls and sexually assaulted one of them.
Officers believe the men in the images may have information which could help their investigation. British Transport Police (BTP) have asked, ‘Do you recognise these men?’
If you recognise them, or have any information, please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 557 of 08/08/21.
Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
