Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted on the Tube as she was travelling with her six-year-old daughter.
The woman, in her 30s, was standing and talking with the little girl as they travelled on the Central line between Mile End and Leytonstone during the evening rush hour.
She was touched inappropriately by a man and when she turned to look at him, he started speaking to the girl to avoid confrontation.
Mum and daughter left the Tube at Leytonstone and the man continued speaking to them before returning to Stratford, where he boarded a DLR headed towards Woolwich Arsenal.
Officers investigating the incident, which took place at around 6.20pm on Tuesday, February 21, have now released an image of a man they believe may have information about what happened.
