A WOMAN was left in tears after she was sexually harassed by a man and hit with a bottle at Drumchapel railway station.

British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident which happened at around 5.25pm on December 22. 

The woman was on a train when a group of men boarded at Anniesland. One of the men approached the woman and started verbally harassing her.

When he was getting off the train at Drumchapel, he threw a bottle of beer at her, hitting her on the shoulder. He shouted sexual comments from the platform, which caused her great distress.

One witness told the Post: “I got on train at Anniesland and around four boys got on the train, they were obviously drunk or something. They went to the left carriage so I thought I’ll go to the right away from them.

“I could hear one boy shouting but couldn’t make out what he was saying and one of the other boys was telling him to shut up as he was embarrassing.

“They got off the train at Drumchapel and I heard a bang but I didn’t know what it was. 

“As I was getting off at Drumry, I seen a girl in the carriage the boys were in and she was crying.

“I asked her if she was OK and she said the boy was being rude to her and the boy tossed a bottle at her when he got off the train it hit her on the arm. 

“I said I would walk with her when she got off the train and offered to call someone but she said her dad was waiting to pick her up so I walked her to car park and made sure she got her dad. It was disgusting, I feel terrible for the poor girl.

"I wish I new she was there as I would have went and took her out the way of them."

The man was white, in his late teens and was around 5ft 10ins. He was wearing a black beanie hat, black jogging top and bottoms and Air Max-style trainers.

The victim was comforted by a member of the public.
