The incident took place on the train between Dalmuir and Larkhall at around 11.30pm on Monday, July 19.

The man, described as having a long grey beard, approached the 14-year-olds after boarding at Argyle Street station in the city centre.

The teens were forced to tell him to leave them alone, but as he left the train he groped another woman who was standing nearby.
