Another CCTV capture of the man

POLICE have released CCTV images following an incident on a train between Thirroul and Wolli Creek Railway Stations earlier this year.

Just before 10am on Saturday October 20, two women boarded a train at Thirroul station, bound for Central.

A man boarded the train, sat near the women before exposing himself and committing an act of indecency in view of them. The women notified a train guard at Wolli Creek, who approached the man before he left the train.

The incident was reported to officers from the Police Transport and Public Safety Command and an investigation commenced.

Following inquiries, investigators have now released CCTV of a man who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The man depicted is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of a medium to large build, and aged in his late 20s. He is seen wearing a black long sleeve jumper and grey shorts. The man has numerous tattoos including the word “baker” on his right leg.
