A vision-impaired man and his guide dog were allegedly assaulted by a 24-year-old man while sitting in the disabled seat on a train.
Police will allege the young man approached an 18-year-old girl while she was waiting for a train at Parramatta on Thursday afternoon.
He allegedly sexually touched her and attempted to kiss her, causing her to immediately leave the platform and board a train, onto which he followed her.
As the train pulled into Westmead Station she left and reported the incident to Sydney Trains staff.
It will be alleged the man remained on the train and approached a vision-impaired man and his dog in the designated disabled space.
