CCTV Released Following "Unprovoked" Train Attack
Thursday 14th August 2014
Police are appealing for information about two people they want to speak to in relation to an "unprovoked" attack.
The appeal from the British Transport Police (BTP) comes following an attack on a man that took place around 3pm, Tuesday, 20th May, on the 2:04pm train from Theobolds Grove to Liverpool Street.
It is reported that a man and a woman (pictured above) boarded the train with a Staffordshire bull terrier at White Hart Lane station.
Shortly after boarding, the man attacked another passenger, apparently without being "provoked" who was already sitting on the train. When the victim tried to defend himself the woman held him down, allowing the attack to continue.
The suspects then left the train at Seven Sisters station while the victim got off at Bruce Grove.
DC Gemma Jones of the BTP said: “We believe the man and woman pictured in these stills will have information which can assist our investigation so it is vitally important that we speak to them. If you can tell us who they are, we want to hear from you.”
Anyone with information should call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or via text on 61016, quoting ESUB/B6 of 08/08/2014. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
