A man was subjected to a “disgraceful and prolonged” sexual assault on a busy Victoria Line train between Finsbury Park and King’s Cross.
Police are appealing for witnesses after the victim, 38, was touched inappropriately by a man on Wednesday morning at about 7.30am.
During the assault, the suspect stood very close to the victim – who was standing on the packed train – and pressed himself against the man.
He then began to touch him, and did not stop until the victim left the train at King’s Cross.
Det Con Suleman Yazdani, who is investigating the crime, said it was a “disgraceful and prolonged assault”.

He added: “As you can imagine, this was a frightening experience for him as he quite rightly did not expect or want this man to touch him.
“Unwanted sexual behaviour such as this will never be tolerated and we work closely with our partners throughout the capital to encourage victims to report offences.”
