Do you recognise this man?

We’d like to speak to him after a suitcase was stolen from an elderly woman as she travelled on the train between Manchester and Sheffield.

On 6 November, the 75-year-old woman was on the 12.16pm train from Manchester, when a man removed her suitcase from the vestibule and left the train at Sheffield.

CCTV shows him entering the toilets with the case and then leaving without it. It was later found abandoned in the toilets, having been searched.

Do you have any information, or do you recognise the man in this image? Officers would like to speak to him as they believe he may have information which could help the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016 with reference 224 of 6 November.
