Man Assaulted On Luton Train
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are asking anyone with information to come forward after a man was assaulted on a train between St Pancras and Luton station.
The attack happened on the 10pm St Pancras to Market Harborough service on Thursday, 6 June shortly after the train left St Pancras.
PC Graham Sheer wants to hear from anyone who was on the train at the time and witnessed what took place.
He said: "The man sat on the train in coach A, and began to shout at a man behind him to stop pushing his chair. He also shouted at a woman who was with the man, because her mobile phone was ringing. At this point, another passenger, a man from Market Harborough, interjected in a bid to stop the incident. The suspect then approached the man, pinned him back in his chair by grabbing the base of his neck and shoulder, and shouted at him before punching him in the face."
The victim left the service at Market Harborough. He was left with bruises and scratches to his neck, shoulder and top lip.
The man officers want to speak to is described as a white, in his 50s, and is believed to be of Irish origin. He had a large build, with balding grey hair, and was wearing glasses and Lycra cycling clothes.
PC Sheer added: "This was a frightening attack that left the victim feeling very shaken. All staff and customers have the right to travel on the rail network without fear of attack, and we take these offences very seriously on the rare occasions when they occur."
