Officers are releasing CCTV images following an appeal for information after a man threatened assaults on a Central Line underground service

The incident happened at around 8.15pm on 25 January.

A number of witnesses reported a man walking through at least two carriages between Oxford Circus and Bond Street.

He shouted at various passengers and threatened them. One witness described the man getting close to his face and shouting he was going to “slit his throat”. Others reported him swearing, throwing things around the carriage and continuing to threaten people and kicking members of the public.

The man left the train at Bond Street.

Investigating officer PC Charlotte Gearing said: “We’d like to speak to anyone who was on the Tube while this was happening, but more importantly we’d like to speak to the man in the CCTV image as we believe he may have information that could help with the investigation. The train would have been busy but many people will have left without contacting police.

“I know from speaking to a number of witnesses that they were left alarmed by this incident so if you have any information, please do let us know.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 587 of 25 January.
