We’d like to speak to the man shown in this CCTV image in connection with an incident in which an elderly man was pushed off a train, and members of the public who tried to intervene were abused with homophobic and racist language.

The incident happened on Friday 10 March at around 1.30pm, on the Victoria line southbound between Green Park and Pimlico.

A man travelling on the service became loud and abusive and pushed an elderly man from the train at Victoria.

Members of the public, a 33-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, challenged the offender’s behaviour and the man verbally used them with racist and homophobic language.

This abuse continued at Pimlico where the victims left the train. The man continued to abuse them until he got on a northbound train and left the station.

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

If you recognise him, please contact British Transport Police by calling 0800 40 50 40 or text information to 61016, quoting reference number 194 11/03/17.
