CCTV images now released to help trace wanted man
CCTV image of a man BTP would like to speak to about an assault on a member of rail staff at Moreton
BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for information after a train manager was assaulted at Moreton Railway Station.
Officers would like the public’s help in identifying the man who assaulted the member of staff on the service from Worcester to London Paddington.
They have now released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident which took place at the station at about 8.45pm on Saturday, April 28.
Investigating officer PC Alan Fishpool said: “The train manager on board the 2002hrs Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington service was standing on the platform at Moreton-in-Marsh rail station when a passenger who had been on the train started verbally abusing him before throwing punches at him.
“The train manager managed to avoid most of the man’s blows, although he was struck on the shoulder.
“The passenger, who appeared to be in drink, had also come to the train manager’s attention earlier in the journey when he attempted to alight from the train at Honeybourne station while it was still in motion.
“Enquiries are ongoing to establish the identity of the man who assaulted the train manager.
“I am now appealing for anyone who knows the man in these CTV images to contact BTP, as I believe he will have information which can assist the investigation.”
Anyone who knows the man’s identity, or his current whereabouts, should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident reference B3/WWA of 21/05/2012.
