Police hunt for an ‘aggressive’ man who abused staff on train at Prestatyn.
British Transport Police are appealing to the public for help in tracing a man who they believe threatened a member of rail staff onboard a train at Prestatyn.
The incident took place around 4pm on Tuesday, 23 August.
Investigating officer PC Kevin Thomas said:
“While the train was stationary at Prestatyn station, a passenger approached the train guard and began verbally abusing him. His behaviour escalated and he became increasingly aggressive and threatened the guard.
“This was naturally a distressing incident for the victim, who was left shaken and upset. Nobody should have to suffer such abuse and threats, particularly when they are just doing their job.
“BTP will not tolerate aggression of any kind towards railway staff and we will do everything possible to track down the offender and bring him to justice.”
Following extensive enquiries, police officers have managed to isolate CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with this incident.
He is described as white, in his 40s, around 6ft tall with dark hair in a ponytail.
He was wearing a bright yellow T-shirt, a grey gilet and was carrying a large rucksack.
It is believed he left the station pushing a mountain bike and had two children with him.
