Do you recognise this young man?
 
Officers would like to identify him after the attempted robbery of a teenager. 
 
On 14 October at approximately 2.30pm, a young man sat opposite a group of three 14-year-old boys on a District Line service to East Ham station. 
 
They all left the train at East Ham, and the young man confronted one of the boys on the platform, demanding his phone and money.
 
He threatened to shoot the victim and showed him the butt of a gun that was tucked into his waistband.
 
Officers believe the young man in the CCTV images may have information which could help them investigate.
