A topless man wearing gold trousers made sexual advances to a young woman during a rail journey between Glasgow and Neilston on Wednesday.

Now British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses to the alleged incidents on the 8.05pm service, which passes through the south side and Eastwood en route to Neilston.

The man is said to have threatened and disturbed other passengers while playing loud music, before making advances to the 20-year-old woman, verbally abusing her and swearing.

He is white, in his 40’s with multi-coloured hair, and is said to be often seen on this stretch of line playing music from a boom box.
