Seven Kings man accused of ‘groping women on Tube’ and ‘pleasuring himself’
A suspected pervert accused of groping women on the Tube and pleasuring himself in front of passengers has appeared in court.
Mobeen Haq, 26, of Elmstead Road, Seven Kings, is accused of molesting four women while they travelled on the Central Line through London at night.
Prosecutors also say Haq exposed himself on a Greater Anglia train service from Goodmayes to Liverpool Street.
Haq appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court this morning to be told his case would be heard at a crown court later this month.
Wearing a dark coat over a bright orange T-shirt, Haq spoke only to confirm his name and address. He has not yet entered a plea to the charges.
