A male commuter is said to have sexually touched an 18-year-old girl on a train platform before following her in a carriage, hitting a blind man, and kicking his dog.
The 24-year-old man is accused of approaching a girl while she was waiting for a train at Parramatta train station on Thursday at 1:45 PM.
“He sexually touched the woman and kissed her on the cheek, immediately leaving the platform and boarding a train,” said an NSW police spokesman.
The man reportedly followed the 18-year-old to the train, prompting her to get off at the next station, Westmead, where she reported the incident to Sydney Trains staff.

However, the man stayed on the train and reportedly approached a blind man sitting on a disabled seat with his guide dog.
“The man verbally abused the victim before hitting him several times, spat on him, and then kicked his dog,” said an NSW police spokesman.
The 24-year-old got off the train at Blacktown Railway Station, where police were waiting to arrest him.
Police say the man spat in an officer’s face and made verbal threats while they arrested him.
He was taken to Blacktown Police Station where he was charged with sexual contact, widespread mistreatment, cruelty to an animal, police mistreatment and harassment of a police officer.
He was denied bail and will face Blacktown Local Court on Friday.
