A man allegedly threatened to follow a woman despite her pleas leave her alone after he crossed train tracks to approach her at a station.

Video posted to social media appears to show a man harassing a woman at Bruce Grove station, despite repeated requests to stop.

British Transport Police (BTP) say they believe the incident took place shortly before 10pm on Friday night (October 20).

Detectives were said to be "aware" of the video and are now investigating a report of sexual harassment at the station.

In the footage, a man appears to cross the tracks to speak to a woman who is waiting on the platform.

The woman, who cannot be seen, is repeatedly heard asking the man to leave her alone, seemingly calling out to someone else at the station to help her.

When no one intervenes, she tells the man to stay away from her.

He retorts – “let me chat” – with the woman replying – “no, I don’t want to chat to you”.

She adds: “I don’t want to chat to you, I don’t know you from anywhere.”

The man replies: “If you act up, I’ll follow you. Let me say my part. Why are you acting like that?”

As the woman films herself appearing to leave the station, the man can be heard threatening to take her phone.

A BTP spokesperson said: “No one should have to put up with this sort of behaviour on the rail network and we take all reports of a sexual harassment very seriously.”

Commenting on the incident, Haringey Council leader Cllr Peray Ahmet said: “I was absolutely appalled to see the footage shared on social media of the terrifying harassment and verbal abuse suffered by one of our residents at Bruce Grove station over the weekend.

“I would like to express my solidarity with the victim, and anyone who has been affected by this issue.

“We are supporting British Transport Police with their investigation into this incident, and I urge anyone with information to come forward so we can make sure this individual is brought to justice.”

BTP have said that enquiries into the incident are ongoing and have appealed to anyone with any information to contact them by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 168 of 22/10/23.
