Train Assault- Police Trying To Trace Man

Train attack

6:49am 18th March 2014

British Transport Police are still trying to trace a man they'd like to speak to about an alleged assault on board a train travelling from Weymouth to Bristol.

A 45-year-old man from Frome was attacked around 7pm on Saturday the 8th February.

DC Eyers said: "The victim, a 45-year-old man from Frome, was travelling on a Weymouth - Bristol Temple Meads train when he was subjected to an apparently unprovoked assault by another man on board the train.

"The man who carried out the assault got off the train at Bruton station. Enquiries have been ongoing to trace him, but to no avail.

"I believe the man in these photographs will have key information about this incident. If you know him, please come forward and contact BTP straight away."

Anyone with information is asked contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016. Alternatively call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
