21-year-old Deneil Walker used Snapchat to groom the child before luring her to Notholt train station in west London. The sex offender paid for the young victim's train ticket and took her on a service bound for London Liverpool Street. During the train journey, Walker sexually assaulted the young girl in the toilets of the train and then left, abandoning her on board.


The devastated girl reached out to members of the public to help her before being taken to the nearest police station, the incident took place on October 4 last year. Walker, of Laburnum Close in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, was arrested the following day.

On Friday, in the dock at Inner London Crown Court, Walker pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in penetrative sexual activity. Walker has been ordered to sign the sex offenders register and was given a restrictive sexual harm prevention order, banning him from using a phone, or any device that connects to the internet for eight years.


Detective Constable Vicki Bladen said: "The victim was in touch with us straight away, a very brave thing to do while dealing with such a distressing offence. "Within hours we were knocking on Walker's door, finding crucial evidence such as the victim's train ticket inside his man bag. He was arrested, charged, and put before the courts.
