The incident happened on the train between Birmingham Moor Street and Solihull Station.

British Transport Police (BTP) have issued a CCTV image of a man they believe will have information which can assist the investigation.

"He is described as being dark-skinned, of stocky build, aged 40 to 50, around 5ft 9in, with short, black hair.

"He was wearing a dark coat and carrying a rucksack."
