CCTV images have been released after a man exposed himself in front of two girls before getting off a train at Stevenage railway station.
A 17-year-old girl was initially targeted on a Welwyn Garden City platform, before the man boarded a train heading to Peterborough.
He then walked up and down the carriage exposing himself and was noticed by a woman in her 60s and her 11-year-old granddaughter. The man then left the train at Stevenage.
The series of indecent exposures took place on July 19 and now officers at the British Transport Police have released images of a man, potentially from the Baldock area, who they would like to speak to in connection with the incidents.
PC Alexei Bobkov, who is investigating, said: “At approximately 7.55pm at WGC station, a 17-year-old girl saw a man exposing himself and behaving indecently on platform four. We believe that a short time later the man boarded the 8.01pm train to Peterborough.
“Soon after the train left Welwyn Garden City, a woman in her 60s travelling with her 11-year-old grand-daughter, witnessed this man walking up and down the carriage exposing himself and behaving inappropriately.
“After several minutes, the man stopped and left the train at Stevenage station. We also believe that the same man might have been involved in further incidents earlier that day where he behaved in similar manner.”

PC Bobkov added: “I believe the man pictured can help us with our investigation and may be from the Baldock area. I would ask anyone who recognises him or who saw what happened to contact us as soon as possible.
“We are taking this incident very seriously, especially given the fact that in both cases the man was in close proximity to young girls.”
