The incident happened at around 5.15pm on Monday, 1 September. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

PC Miles Caine said: “Two men and a woman got off a train from Shotton and began arguing amongst themselves. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“A member of staff intervened to calm the situation, but was grabbed by one of the men.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The man shouted threats at the victim as he grappled with him, and the assault was only brought to an end after the other man intervened. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

PC Caine said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Fortunately, the victim did not sustain any serious injuries, but his clothing was torn during the attack. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We want the rail network to be a safe place for passengers and staff, and will not accept violence of any kind. That is why we are determined to find the man responsible for this attack. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I believe the man in the image we are issuing today has valuable information about the incident. Do you recognise him? Please contact BTP.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
