Friday 10.40am: British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for help to identify two young women they believe may have information about an assault that took place at Peterborough railway station.

The incident took place at around 4.45pm on Sunday, November 23 in the main entrance of the station.

Two women had forced their way through the ticket barriers to exit the station. They ran through the booking office and out of the main entrance where they pushed a man out of the way.

PC Zak Stevens said, “The victim, a 73-year-old man from the March area of Cambridgeshire, sustained injuries to his arm, elbow and swelling to his hand.

“We are now releasing CCTV images of two women who we would like to speak to in connection with the incident. If you recognise them please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting background MSUB/B5 of 19/12/14. Information can also be passed to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
