Detectives investigating an attempted armed robbery on a train to Brimsdown on Friday morning (12/07) are looking to identify the man in these CCTV images in connection.

At around 11am, the victim, a 19-year-old man, was approached by another man on board a Greater Anglia service travelling from Liverpool Street to Brimsdown.

The man demanded cash and the victim’s bank card. When the victim refused to hand them over, the man reached into his bag and pulled out a silver revolver handgun.

It is not yet known whether this was a viable handgun or an imitation firearm. 

As the train pulled into Brimsdown, the victim ran through the train to inform the driver and the man left the train at the station, walking through the underpass.

It is believed he had boarded the train at Ponders End.

Officers believe the man in the CCTV images may have information which could help their investigation. 

Detective Sergeant Dean Percival, said: “This is an incredibly concerning incident and we are doing everything we can to trace the individual involved and remove this potential weapon from the streets. 

“If you recognise the man in the images, I would urge you contact us as soon as possible by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 199 of 12/07/19.”
