Truro Train Thug

British Transport Police want to find out who this man is so they can talk to him about three aggressive incidents at Truro railway station.

The first was at around 7.50pm on Monday, 30 July, 2012, when he was told by rail staff he would not be allowed to travel on a London Paddington-bound train as he had no ticket or money.

 Investigating officer, PC Wayne Frost, said the man became aggressive towards a member of railway staff, swearing at him and threatening him with violence.

He returned to station at 10.45pm and tried to board the sleeper service to London but was again refused travel as he still had no money or ticket. Once again, he became aggressive and swore at members of station staff.

The following morning, Tuesday 31 July, a different member of staff encountered the same passenger who shouted at the member of staff and spat towards him. 

PC Frost said: "The passenger, who had caused problems the day before, also became abusive towards this other member of staff before eventually leaving the station. Clearly, this maniac's behaviour was unacceptable towards members of rail staff on both days. Staff have the right to go to work without suffering abuse of this kind."
