Detectives investigating an attempted robbery on the London Underground yesterday (22/07) are urging the victim to come forward and assist with their enquiries.

At around 4pm, an off-duty BTP officer witnessed an attempted robbery on board a southbound Northern Line train, where the male victim was threatened with violence.

A 15-year-old boy from Walsall was arrested by the officer and removed from the train at Waterloo. 

While the man was being arrested, the victim, believed to be in his teens, left the station on the train without leaving their details.

Officers are now urging the victim to come forward and provide their account of what happened.

If this was you, or you witnessed the incident and are yet to speak with police, please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 382 of 22/07/19.
