We are appealing for information after two men stole a McDonalds burger and milkshake from a man who has Autism at Holborn underground station.

The victim, a 23-year-old man, was walking through the station at around 2.30am on Sunday 19 March when he was stopped by another man.

The man demanded the victim hand over his food and when he refused, a second man threatened him.

They then took the victim’s McDonalds meal and Beats headphones from him and made off on an Eastbound central line.

We are releasing CCTV images of two men officers would like to speak to in connection with the incident as they may have information which could help with the investigation.

Investigating officer, PC Suzanne Canning, said: “Fortunately the victim was not injured, but he is still very much shaken by the incident and has not travelled on the Tube since as he feels too vulnerable.

“I would like to speak to the men shown in the CCTV images as they may have information which could help with the investigation. Please contact me if you recognise them, as soon as possible by calling 0800 40 50 40 or text information to 61016, quoting reference number 366 05/04/ 2017.”
