Transport police hunting a passenger caught masturbating on the Overground want to speak to this man.
A man was seen touching himself inappropriately on the train between Highbury and Islington and Dalston Junction at 6.30pm on August 10.
British Transport Police (BTP) believe this man may also have information about a similar incident the previous day on the Central Line between Leyton and Newbury Park.
A man believed to be in his late 20s to early 30s was seen masturbating while whispering to a woman on the train before another man intervened.
Investigating officer PC George James, said: “We simply will not tolerate behaviour such as this and we are working hard to find the person responsible.
