They suspect there could be more victims.

Sergeant Roy McMicheal, of British Transport Police, said: “We believe that the man may regularly travel up and down the Leeds to Loughborough stretch of line which passes through Sheffield, Chesterfield, Nottingham and East Midlands Parkway, so it may be that there are other victims that we are unaware of.

“If you recognise the man pictured please contact us.

“We take all reports of this nature very seriously and our recent Report It to Stop It campaign, which aims to combat unwanted sexual behaviour on the railway by encouraging members of the public to report it, is proving very successful in supporting victims and bringing perpetrators of these crimes to justice.”
