Gregory Saveall fined after groping woman at Moor Park tube station
A man who inappropriately touched a woman at a Tube station has been fined £500, following a British Transport Police (BTP) investigation.
Gregory Saveall, 34, of Holmside Rise, Watford, appeared at St Albans Crown Court on Thursday, February 28.
He was handed a £500 fine and was ordered to pay £2,500 in costs after being found guilty of sexual assault on a female.
Saveall committed the offence at around 6pm on March 5, 2012, at Moor Park London Underground station.
The victim was walking up the stairs towards the exit when she felt Saveall inappropriately touch her.
Saveall was identified on CCTV, enabling officers to track him through the network.
Speaking after the sentencing Detective Constable Claire Sheals said: "The prosecution brought against Saveall shows just how seriously British Transport Police takes this sort of behaviour.
"While this type of offence is extremely rare on the London Underground, we understand that it is an extremely upsetting and intimidating experience for anyone who is a victim.
"We know that victims of unwanted sexual behaviour often don’t report it to police, either because they don’t think it was important enough or they are not sure that it happened.
"We take all reports of sexual assault very seriously and do everything we can to identify and arrest the offender.
"I urge anyone who suspects they have been a victim of an offence like this to report it to police so that it can be properly investigated."
