Do you know this man?

We’re looking for him in connection with an incident in which a woman’s purse was stolen – before her cards were used at various shops in Yorkshire.

The woman was asleep on a train between Doncaster and Retford at around 10.50am on Sunday 2 April.

When she woke up, she realised her purse had been taken from her bag under the seat. Her bank cards, which were contactless, were then used at Superdrug, Asda and Bustens in Retford. They were later used at other shops in the Wakefield, Pontefract and  Leeds areas.

Anyone with information is asked to call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference 1700021960.
