Do you recognise this man? 

We’d like to speak to him in connection to an incident which involved a man carrying a weapon on a train between Laindon and Barking. 

The incident happened between 11.13 and 11.48pm on 17 April, when a man showed a fellow passenger what looked like a hand gun in the waistband of his trousers. It is unknown if the weapon was real or an imitation.

Drinking from a vodka bottle, he left the train at Barking before boarding a District Line train.

If this man looks familiar to you or you have any other information about this incident, please text 61016 or call 0800 40 50 40 quoting 327 of 20 April 2018.
