Do you recognise this man?

We would like to speak to him in connection with a robbery at Gants Hill underground station in London.

Shortly before 11pm on Friday 30 December, a 19-year-old man was entering Gants Hill station when he was approached by another man who started shouting at him.

The offender followed the victim onto the westbound platform and threatened him.  He then pushed him against the wall and held him there.

At this point a member of staff intervened and the offender left the scene, taking the victim’s beanie hat.

The victim sustained bruising to his arm and head. He was taken to hospital for treatment and was later discharged.

Officers would like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV image as he may have information which could help with the investigation.

We’d also like to speak to anyone who was at Gants Hill station on the evening of 30 December, who may have seen the offender or the incident.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference number 171 10/01/2017.
