Female ticket examiner attacked on Glasgow to Ayr train

A female ticket examiner has been assaulted and subjected to "sexually explicit gestures" on board a train travelling from Glasgow Central to Ayr.

The 35-year-old victim was left "extremely upset" after a man pulled her head back and made the gestures on the 18:34 service on Saturday.

The suspect is believed to have got on the train with a group of men at Irvine and got off at Prestwick Town station.

He is described as about 6ft tall and of slim build.

At the time of the attack he was wearing a grey flat cap, a wax-style jacket and jeans.

He spoke with a local accent and had been drinking.

Det Con Craig Jennings, of British Transport Police, said: "Anyone who was on the train or was at either station and who may have witnessed this unwelcome and unwarranted assault on someone just getting on with their work is urged to get in touch."
