Do you recognise this man? We’d like to speak to him in connection with a robbery on board the Metro in Sunderland.

It happened between 10pm and 10.25pm on Tuesday 4 April.

A 14-year-old boy boarded the Metro at Monument Metro station and a man boarded at the same time and sat opposite him.

As the Metro arrived at Park Lane Metro station at around 10.20pm, the victim was looking at his phone.

The man stood up as if to leave the train then pushed the victim and grabbed the phone from his hand.

The victim chased the offender and struggled with him by the train doors, but the suspect ran off with the victim’s phone.

Another passenger came to the assistance of the victim who was distressed and took him home.

We would like to speak to the man shown in the CCTV images as he may have information which could help the investigation.

If you recognise him or have any other information, please call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference number 294 19/04/17.
