Police were yesterday hunting a randy passenger who PLEASURED HIMSELF in front of other travellers on a crowded train.
The man was spotted performing a sex act on the late afternoon Redditch- New Street service as it headed into New Street station.
A shocked fellow passenger informed police after he sat opposite the suspect and saw him brazenly carrying out the “prolonged indecent act”.

Officers yesterday appealed for witnesses to the Sunday October 27 incident on the 16.27 London Midland service to Birmingham New Street service.
Lead investigator PC Ali Jama said: “A passenger on board the train sat opposite a man who he noticed was performing a prolonged indecent act on himself.”
“The offender’s actions were completely unacceptable and I am now calling on anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
“I have conducted a number of enquiries to date and have isolated a CCTV image of a man I believe will have key information in relation to this incident.”
PC Jama urged witnesses to contact police quoting incident reference WWA/B6 of 03/12/13.
