Transport Police seek man following two separate assaults
British Transport Police are appealing for information about two separate incidents that took place on the Central Line on Friday September 20.
PC Gemma Ryan, the investigating officer, says:
"As she left the train at Bond Street the man struck her on the left hand side of her face with the back of his hand. The woman was left with slight bruising and a bloodshot eye."
"The victim, a 26 year-old woman from Hammersmith, was struck in the face by a man who was walking in the opposite direction."
Enquiries are ongoing into both assaults and officers have released two CCTV images of a man they believe could hold key information vital to the investigation.
PC Ryan says: " The assaults were random and unprovoked, leaving both women understandably very upset.
"We don’t tolerate violence anywhere on the London Underground network and I’d urge anyone who recognises the man pictured, or has any information that could help our investigation, to please contact us."
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting background B7/LUA of 21/10/13.
Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
