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.

He is accused of sexually assaulting two women on June 21 this year, and groping a further two women less than a month later, on July 17.

He is also accused of outraging public decency while allegedly masturbating on June 7, 2012.
