A woman claims that she was approached by an unknown man to ask her for directions, and shortly after she gave those directions she said that the man kissed her on her cheek and neck.

She pushed past him after he continued to touch her, the release states, and once she made it on to the train she saw the man approaching another female on the platform.

It is indicated by CCTV cameras that the man approached at least two women on the platform, though the second has not yet been identified by police.
