Appeal after threatening behaviour on Manchester train

THE British Transport Police are asking for help following an incident the took place at around 9pm, on Tuesday, 29 December 2015. A Police spokesman said:- "We're looking to trace a man we believe can help our investigation after a passenger was insulted and threatened on board a train between Wigan and Manchester Piccadilly Stations. We want to ask if your readers know who he is?" If you do know the identity of the male in this CCTV image, please contact them on:- 0800 40 50 40 or text send a text to:- '61016' quoting:- 'PSUB/B2 of 12/01/16'

Investigating officer PC Jonathan Ackerley said:- "The victim was travelling in the 1st Class Carriage of the 18.17 Edinburgh Haymarket to Manchester Airport service. He was approached by a man who thrust a phone in his face and directed foul language, abuse and insults at him. He went on to threaten to 'smash up the train', before shouting racist language."

Following enquiries, we are told that Officers then managed to isolate CCTV images of a man we would like to speak to in connection with this incident. PC Ackerley added:- "The victim was left feeling extremely uncomfortable and anxious as a result of this behaviour, so much so that he moved carriages to avoid him. No one should be made to feel intimidated or threatened while travelling on the rail network. I believe the man in the image will have vital information which could greatly assist our investigation; who is he?"

If you know the man pictured, or have any information about the incident, please give us a call. Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.
