Homophobic Abuse At MK Train Station
21 May 2015, 10:53
Two men have been homophobically abused at Milton Keynes train station.
The incident happened as the men waited for a train to Northampton at 3.40pm on Friday, 1 May.
Sergeant John Sturge said: "The duo were approached by two men who made several homophobic remarks.
"The abuse became increasingly threatening, with the victims left feeling intimidated and fearing for their safety."
The men did not follow through on their threats and fled the station after police were called.
As part of their investigation, officers have viewed CCTV from the station and are now issuing two images.
Sgt Sturge said: "Passengers have the right to expect their journey to be safe and comfortable.
"Hate crime is unacceptable and we will do everything we can to find those responsible.
"I believe the men in the images we are issuing today have information which can help with our investigation. If you know who they are, call BTP."
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference MSUB/B4 of 21/05/2015.
Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
