POLICE are appealing for witnesses to help them identify a man who was spotted on CCTV after two teenage boys were assaulted at Redditch train station in an unprovoked attack.

The 15-year-olds had got off a train at around 6.10pm on October 3 when a man approached them from behind and pushed one of the teenagers in the back of his head.

The other boy asked the offender what he was doing at which point, the man grabbed the teen, pulled him to the floor and punched him.

The youngster suffered cuts and bruises to his face whilst the other boy was un-hurt.

The offender is understood to have had a six or seven-year-old boy with him at the time of the attack – possibly his son.

PC Alex Beasley from British Transport Police (BTP) said: “We believe this to be an unprovoked attack against two youths and we’ve been carrying out enquiries in the area to establish who may be responsible.

“We’ve identified a CCTV image of a man who we’d like to talk to about this offence and I’d urge anyone who knows him to contact us.”

Anyone with information should call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text the force on 61016, quoting reference M/B4 29/10/15.

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
