Do you recognise these boys?

Officers would like to speak to them after a man was assaulted and his bag was stolen.


Shortly after 11.50pm on 17 September, the victim boarded a northbound Northern Line Tube train at Charing Cross station.


When on the train, the victim saw a group of teenagers behaving in a rowdy manner. When he challenged one of the boys about their behaviour, another stole his bag just as the train was pulling into Edgware station.


After arriving at Edgware station, the victim chased the group of boys as they ran out of the building. Once out of the station, one of the group pushed and hit the victim, causing him to fall.


The groups of teenagers then left the area, leaving the victim with minor injuries.


Officers would like to speak to the boys pictured in the CCTV image because they believe they may have information which could help officers investigate.

If you recognise the boys or have any information which could help our investigation, please call 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting 4 of 18/09/2018  


Alternatively, if you prefer, you can ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
