British Transport Police officers would like to speak to the man in this photograph in connection with an assault on a conductor.

At about 7.30pm on 16 July, the conductor was walking down the Llandudno to Manchester Piccadilly service when he came across a man without a ticket.

The man refused to pay and so was asked to leave the train at Flint.

When the train stopped, the man punched the conductor in the face as he was leaving the train and ran off towards the station.

It is believed he may be from the Wrexham area.

Officers would like to speak to the man in this picture in connection with the incident.

Investigating officer PC Sean Braithwaite said: “The conductor was just carrying out his job when he was subjected to an unprovoked and unacceptable assault.

“I ask anyone who recognises the man from this image to get in touch immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting 494 of 16/7.
