Man arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting Longfield woman on train
BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) has arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with a sexual assault on a train.
The man, from Sittingbourne, came forward after seeing a police appeal and was arrested today (August 23 ) on suspicion of sexual assault.
He has been bailed until September 20 pending further enquiries.
The alleged incident took place on May 3 just after 8pm on a train between Sittingbourne and Rainham.
After trying to strike up a conversation with the victim, a 46-year-old woman from Longfield, a man attempted to kiss her before touching her indecently.
He then left the train at Rainham.
The victim continued on the train to Longfield before reporting the incident to staff, who alerted police.
