Officers would like to speak to him after two women were verbally and physically assaulted on a train from London Kings Cross to Peterborough.

At around 8.22pm on Saturday 9 December, the victims were on the train when a man started loudly saying racist and homophobic comments. The women interjected and the man responded by assaulting one of them by pushing her on the shoulder and inappropriately touching the other. He then threatened them both.

The suspect alighted the train at Huntingdon.

Investigating officer PC Christopher Marshall said: “This was a sustained and frightening ordeal for the two women, who did nothing to incite such violence.

“We will not stand for hate crime of any kind and so if you have any information in relation to this offence, please contact us as soon as you can.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 with reference 590 of 9 December.
