Group of Chelsea fans accused of sexually assaulting women and racist chants on train

A group of Chelsea football fans is being sought by English police after a series of incidents that reportedly took place on a train from London to Worcester back in December.

A group of men allegedly committed sexual assaults and engaged in racist chanting during a train journey between the cities following Chelsea’s home defeat to Leicester City on December 22.

A statement from the British Transport Police laid out the details of the alleged incidents, saying: “A group of around 20 football fans boarded the 6:22pm Great Western Service from London Paddington and began to chant racially abusive comments in front of families and children.

“They were also seen to sexually assault a number of women on board the train.

It is believed they were Chelsea fans. The group, who were all men, left the train at Worcester.

“Officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed what happened to get in touch so they can assist the investigation.

“In particular, they believe a number of women who were sexually assaulted are yet to come forward and they would like to encourage them to do so.”
