Woolwich Dockyard-Charlton142.jpgCCTV images of a man British transport police would like to speak to in connection with an incident in which a man exposed himself to a woman and a young girl have been released.

The 35-year-old woman was travelling on a train with her two-year-old niece between Woolwich Dockyard and Charlton on Sunday March 11 when the incident happened.

The pair were on the Plumbstead to London Bridge service at around 2.20pm when the woman noticed the man starring at her.

When she got up from her seat she realised he had exposed himself and confronted him.

She threatened to call the police and he swore at her and left the train at Charlton.

Investigating officer PC Alex O'Leary said: "This shocking incident quite understandably left the victim outraged and sickened.

"It's unclear why the man felt the need to act this way in front of the woman and her niece but we'll do everything we can to identify him.

"The CCTV images we've been able to retrieve are very clear and I am certain someone will recognise this man. If you do, please come forward and talk to us."
