8:51am 16th November 2012

A man's been searched and robbed at Weymouth Train Station.

British Transport Police have just released information about the incident that happened on Sunday the 27th October at around 4.20 in the afternoon.

Detective Constable Phil James, investigating the incident, said:

"A man approached the 42-year-old victim and began demanding money from him.

"He then grabbed the victim's jacket before rifling through his pockets and taking a twenty pound note from him.

"The victim, who was accompanied by his friend, shouted and managed to get away before reporting the incident to station staff."

Extensive enquiries have been carried out since the incident and, as a result of these, BTP have identified the man in the CCTV image as being crucial to the investigation.

DC James added: "I would now like to identify and speak to the man in the photograph as I believe he will have information which can assist police.

"I would urge anyone who knows the identity of this man, or his current whereabouts, to come forward and contact British Transport Police straight away."

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

In all calls please quote incident reference B5/LSA of 14/11/12.
