Thugs who went on the rampage on board a train – beating up passengers in a series of “unprovoked” attacks – are being hunted.
Police want to trace three men after one passenger suffered a broken nose and another lost a tooth after being battered by the trio on the Sunday morning service.
Detectives have released CCTV images taken on the train at the time of the incidents between Tulse Hill station in south London and Tattenham Corner station in Surrey at around 7.45am on Sunday February 10th.
A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: “Three men are reported to have been involved in attacks on a number of passengers.
“One man had his tooth broken after being punched in the face. A second man suffered a broken nose.
“Officers believe the men in the images may have information that could help their investigation.”
He said anyone who witnessed the incident, or who knows the identity of the men, should call BTP or Crimestoppers.
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
