Police hunting sex offender who groped women on public transport
A MANHUNT is underway for a convicted sex offender who has failed to tell police where he is living.
Colin Franklin was released from prison last December and part of the requirement of his sex offender registration is that he must tell police his current address.
But the 46-year-old, who lived in and around the Beckenham area before being jailed in September 2009, has not done so.
Franklin is on the sex offenders register for life and also has a sexual offences prevention order stopping him from entering or travelling on the London Underground or Docklands Light Railway for five years.
He was given a three year jail sentence at Southwark Crown Court after being found guilty of sexual assault in February 2010.
During his trial the court heard he made lewd comments to two train passengers at Manor House and Belsize Park Tube stations in September 2008.
On both occasions he groped the women's breasts before fleeing as the train doors opened at the platforms.
In a third attack, also in September 2008, Franklin repeatedly groped a woman from behind as she stepped off a train at Angel Tube station.
Franklin was found not guilty of two other counts of sexual assault during his trial in September 2009.
Anyone who knows where Franklin is should call Bromley police's jigsaw unit on 020 8284 8773 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
