A man was arrested and later charged by police at New Malden station over 'unwanted sexual behaviour' recently.

Police working with the Wimbledon section of British Transport Police (BTP) said they arrested the man on Saturday night (November 8) over a sex crime. 

Responding to a request from the Surrey Comet newspaper, a spokesperson for BTP said a 28-year-old man was due in court today (November 9) after being charged with sexual assault:

"British Transport Police were called to New Malden station at 9.13pm on 07/11. A man named Marcin Plikunas, 28, of NFA, was arrested and later charged with sexual assault and threatening behaviour.

"He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court today 09/11."

Initially reporting the assault soon after making the arrest, a spokesperson for BTP London had posted details and urged the public to report such crimes:

"Wimbledon CORE officers arrested a male last night at New Malden Railway Station after unwanted sexual behaviour on a female.

"This behaviour is totally unacceptable and you should always report it to us. You can report this to us by texting 61016 @SW_Help #reportittostopit."

In a later update, the BTP London account confirmed the man involved had been charged and said they take sex crimes "very seriously":

"Update - The Male arrested at New Malden on Saturday evening has been Charged and remanded to appear at court today. We take unwanted sexual behaviour very seriously," the spokesperson wrote.
