BTP officers are today releasing a CCTV image following a report of an offensive weapon on a train in Wales.
The incident happened at 2.50pm on Saturday 3 August between Cardiff and Bridgend stations.
A man is reported to have become verbally aggressive after a food trolley accidently bumped his seat.
He then pulled out a screwdriver and began gesturing at staff members in the train car. Another screwdriver was seen tucked into his waistband.
He continued to verbally abuse the staff members until he left the train at Bridgend station.
Officers believe the man in the image may have information that could help their investigation.
