Pen­sioner ‘se­ri­ous’ after at­tack

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

POLCE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent at Uxbridge sta­tion after which a 65-year-old man has been left in hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion.

The vic­tim, from the Wem­b­ley area, was in­volved in what Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice (BTP) de­scribe as ‘an al­ter­ca­tion’ at the sta­tion in Uxbridge High Street at around noon on Satur­day, Jan­uary 3.

There are no de­tails of the other per­son or peo­ple in­volved, and BTP says it is analysing images from the sta­tion’s nu­mer­ous CCTV cam­eras to try to piece the se­quence of events to­gether.

Met Po­lice and London Am­bu­lance Ser­vice staff at­tended the scene and the man was taken to hos­pi­tal where he is in a ‘se­ri­ous but sta­ble’ con­di­tion. The sta­tion was closed for a short time fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent.

BTP said: “Any­one who wit­nessed an al­ter­ca­tion on Satur­day morn­ing at Uxbridge sta­tion or on a Met­ro­pol­i­tan line train should con­tact Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quot­ing ref­er­ence 130 of 03/01/2015.”
