Police release CCTV images after Dartford man attacked on train between Bromley South and Bickley
BRITISH Transport Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward after a Dartford man was attacked on a train.
Officers have released CCTV images of three men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident, which happened at around 9.44pm on February 17.
The 43-year-old victim was travelling between Bromley South and Bickley when he approached three men who were being loud and abusive to a fellow passenger.
In return, the trio suddenly attacked the man, with one of them holding him whilst the others punched him, causing him to fall to the ground.
The victim was left with facial swelling and bruising and was temporarily unable to see out of his left eye.
Officers are currently making local enquiries and are circulating these images on police intelligence systems but additional help is needed from the public.
Investigating officer, PC Keef Cook, said: "I am very keen to speak with these men as I think they may be able to help with the investigation.
"Do you recognise the men? Are you one of them? If so, I urge you to get in touch.
"Thankfully these types of offences are very rare on the rail network; however we are taking this incident very seriously and are determined to catch those responsible.
"If you saw anything, please come forward and speak to us."
Anyone with information should call 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B8/LSA of 13/03/12 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
