Do you recognise these men?

We’d like to speak to them in relation to an unprovoked attack on a couple at Barnsley station.

Shortly after 9.04pm on Saturday 5 May, a man and woman were on the 8.30pm train from Leeds to Barnsley.

A man walked past, and deliberately bumped into the female victim a number of times. There was a brief verbal altercation.

When the couple got off the train at Barnsley, three men approached them and assaulted them on the stairs to the overbridge.

The woman was knocked to the floor and the man was punched a number of times. The incident left both victims with bruising and cuts.

Do you recognise the men in these images? We’d like to speak to them as it is believed they 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 220 of 22/05/2018.
