BTP releases CCTV images following robbery and kidnapping at Waterloo station

British Transport Police (BTP) has released CCTV images following a robbery and kidnapping at Waterloo station on Wednesday 1 July.

The victim, a woman in her late teens, was approached by a man at Waterloo station at around 2:30pm.

The man initially asked for help but then proceeded to follow the female when she ignored him. He then grabbed her arm, brought the victim to a ticket machine and made her purchase a top-up for his Oyster card.

He then forced her to board a Jubilee line to Westminster Tube station where the victim was able to alert station staff between 3:45pm – 3:50pm.  As she did this the suspect walked away and exited the station.

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

Anyone who recognises him, or anyone with information, can contact BTP by texting 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference number 301 of 01/007/20.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
