Merseyside Police has released a CCTV image of a man officers would like to speak to in connection to two incidents during which a woman was touched inappropriately.

The first incident occurred on Thursday, 12 March. At about 1pm a woman who had been travelling on the Southport to Liverpool train reported that she had been touched inappropriately by a man.

The second incident occurred on Thursday, 19 March. The same woman reported that at about 4.10pm the same man approached her in a supermarket on Old Hall Street, grabbed her and attempted to kiss her. A member of staff at the store intervened and the man ran away.

Although uninjured the woman has been left distressed following the incident.

Officers believe the man pictured may be able to assist them with their enquiries and they would urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch.

Anyone who recognises the man or anyone who witnessed either of the incidents is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 4068 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
