Do you recognise this woman?

Officers would like to identify her after a homophobic incident on board a Hammersmith and City line tube train. 

On 9 August at approximately 7.25am, two men boarded a train at Plaistow and asked a woman to move her bag from a seat so they could sit down.

A verbal altercation ensued, during which the woman shouted homophobic abuse at the two men.

She then threw a cup of coffee at the victims and hit one of them in the face several times.

It is believed the woman left the train at Bromley by Bow station.

Officers believe the woman in the photo may have information which could help their investigation.

If you recognise her or witnessed the incident please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 143 of 9/08/18.
