Detectives from British Transport Police are looking to identify them following an attempted robbery at West Hampstead station. 

Just after 12pm on 11 May, the 28-year-old victim had just left a northbound Jubilee Line train at West Hampstead. During the journey from Bond Street, the victim was verbally abused by a man and a woman. 

At West Hampstead, he was followed by the couple and he decided to wait in the station, hoping they would move on. However the two suspects approached him, blocking his path and demanded he hand over his belongings. The man pulled out a knife and threatened him. 

Fearing for his life, the victim ran away and took shelter in a building. The two suspects then ran away. 

Officers believe the man and woman shown in these CCTV images may have information which could help the investigation. 

If you know who they are, please contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 15 of 11/05/2018. Alternatively, ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
