Officers from British Transport Police are launching a witness appeal following an assault and trespass incident. 

At approximately 7.40pm on 2 June, a man walked across the tracks between the two platforms at Mansfield Town station, so he could talk with a group of teenage girls. 

After a short while, the man became aggressive and pushed one of the teenage girls. He continued his aggressive behaviour, screaming at other passengers who came to assist the girls. 

Officers are mindful a number of people may have been subjected to this man’s aggressive behaviour and today they are urging them to get in touch as soon as possible. 

You can contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 586 of 02/06/2018. 

In connection with this incident, a 29-year-old man of no fixed address was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and affray. He was released under policing investigation whilst enquiries continue.
