Police appeal for assault witnesses - Dinas Rhondda rail station

October 9, 2013

British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for witnesses after a woman was assaulted at Dinas Rhondda rail station.

Officers want to hear from anyone who may have been at the station around the time of the incident, which occurred around 12pm on Sunday, 25th August 2013.

The victim, a 19-year-old woman from Pontypridd, had been dropped off at the station by her boyfriend with the intention of catching a train down the valley.

Shortly after, while waiting for her train, she was approached by a man who asked her when the next train was due. He then walked away before returning a few moments later and grabbing her from behind.

Fortunately, another man intervened and prevented him from further assaulting the victim.

Police are now appealing for any members of the public who were at Dinas Rhondda station at the time to come forward.

The incident took place in broad daylight, just after midday, in front of several other passengers who were waiting for the same train – the 12:07 service from Treherbert.

Police are now appealing for any members of the public who were at Dinas Rhondda station at the time to come forward.
