Monday 16th June 2014

British Transport Police officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man was assaulted with wooden poles at Harringay Green Lanes London Overground station.

One of the men BTP wish to speak to

The 27 year old victim was attacked on the platform just before 11am on Tueday 6th May.

Officers have released CCTV images of two men they wish to speak to.

Detective Constable Graeme Knox, of BTP Euston, said: "The victim was at the station when he was attacked by a man. Another man arrived a short time later and also took part in the assault. They both used weapons, believed to be wooden poles, which left the victim needing hospital treatment for a cut to his forehead.

"Iím keen to speak to anyone who thinks they might recognise the men pictured or who was at the station at the time and witnessed the incident. Violence of this kind is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated on the rail network."
