British Transport Police have also released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident at Prestatyn Station, which took place around 1.15pm on Wednesday, 6 August. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Investigating officer PC Neal Lindskog said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Two men entered Prestatyn station just before 1pm and loitered for a short while before approaching the cycle rack. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“One of the men then proceeded to cut the lock off one of the bikes and attempted to board a train with it. As luck would have it, the owner was getting off the train at that exact moment and recognised his bike. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“He immediately challenged the man and managed to reclaim his bike before the would-be thief ran off the station. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Enquiries have been ongoing and I am today able to release CCTV images of a man I would like to identify and speak to, as I believe he may have key information in relation to this incident.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
