Following a recent appeal for information in connection with an incident in which a man's ear was bitten on a train, a man has been reported for assault.
The incident happened on Friday 6 October on a Southern Trains service between London Bridge and Peckham Rye. 
A 24-year-old man was assaulted by another passenger, who bit his ear.
Following an appeal for information last week, a 55-year-old man from Southwark has been spoken to by police and reported in connection with the incident. 
Therefore we are no longer appealing for information to identify the person shown in the CCTV images.
Thank you to the media and public for your assistance with this appeal.
