Bromley Attack

Police are hunting a lout who head-butted a woman during a row on a late night train in London.

Officers say the brutal attack happened on a train between Victoria and Orpington at just before 12:30am on Friday 28th of October.

The 22-year old victim was on the train with a friend when she became involved in an argument with another man on the train.

The man walked towards her down the aisle of the carriage and became very aggressive. After he threatened the victim he then head-butted her in her face.

She fell backwards and sustained injuries to her mouth, requiring dental treatment as a result of the assault. The suspect got off the train at Petts Wood station.

Officers would like to speak to the man shown in the image as he may have information which could help with the investigation.
