Mum sexually assaulted on train in front of her children

A man who sexually assaulted a mum in front of her young children on a train was jailed.

Paul Andrew Perry, aged 37, of Collier Street, Runcorn, subjected two women to disgusting sexual slurs as they travelled back from a day trip to Southport with their children.

When one of the children began to cry he said that he would prefer not to travel in a nursery.

The victim, believing Perry to be drunk, ignored him but he then began making fun of the way she spoke, before making lewd and derogatory comments about the women.

He continued to make sexual and lewd comments to the women in front of their children until a fellow passenger asked him to stop.

When one of the women got up to push the pram to the aisle, Perry approached and sexually assaulted her until the same passenger stepped in to stop it.

He was sentenced to 20 weeks jail at Liverpool Magistrates today, with an additional four weeks for assaulting a police officer on a separate occasion.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115 and must sign the sex offender’s register for seven years.
