A man exposed and pleasured himself as he made lewd remarks at a woman - then followed her off a train as she tried to escape.
The disturbing incident happened on Monday March 2 at around 10pm on a Tower Gateway-bound train at Westferry station.
The man approached a 28-year-old woman on the platform.
Detective Constable Suleman Yazdani said: “Once on the train, he sat opposite her, exposing himself and masturbating, before standing up and making lewd remarks.
“The woman tried to ignore him and hurriedly left the train at Tower Gateway. Undeterred, the man followed her off the train, before eventually leaving the station via the main exit and making his way towards Tower Hill London Underground station.”
