An investigation has been launched after a man was brutally assaulted at Queensway London Underground Station.
 
The incident happened on March 20 at 5.25pm.
 
Officers have now released CCTV images and are appealing for information.
 
A man barged into the victim at the ticket barriers in order to exit the station without paying for his fare. The victim, who was trying to enter the station after activating the barriers with his debit card, confronted the suspect about his behaviour.

The man took offence to the victim’s confrontation and assaulted him.

The victim sustained a black eye, swelling to his face and severe laceration to the top of his head, requiring seven stitches.

The man, who was travelling a woman, quickly left the station and turned right onto Bayswater Road before officers arrived.

Investigating officer PC Eric Enang said: “The victim has suffered some very severe injuries. I would like to speak to the man in the CCTV image as I believe he will have vital information that will help us with the investigation.

“Everyone has the right to travel on the railway network without fear of being assaulted.”

Anyone with any information should contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 citing reference 284 31/03/2017.
