A teenage girl was sexually assaulted by a man wearing a Christmas jumper on a train.
The 17-year-old was targeted while she was travelling on board the Dunblane to Edinburgh Waverley train.
British Transport Police said the victim was sitting in the middle carriage of the train when she was assaulted shortly after it departed Larbert station.
The man, who was sitting next to her, inappropriately touched the teenager before a train conductor helped her to move away from him on the 11.09pm service on December 16.
Constable Andrew McAinsh said: "Everyone should be able to travel on the railway network without experiencing unwanted sexual behaviour.
"I would like to commend the victim for reporting what happened to her. She was very shaken by the incident and an investigation is underway to identify the offender.
"Any behaviour that makes you feel uncomfortable on the railway will be taken seriously by us and we encourage everyone to report incidents like this so that we can take action."
Police said the attacker is 5ft 11in, aged in his late 20s, with strawberry blonde hair. He was wearing a Christmas jumper and jeans at the time of the offence.
