Ruislip & Eastcote & Northwood Gazette - - News -

POLICE are link­ing two in­ci­dents in which Lon­don Un­der­ground staff mem­bers were threat­ened with a knife at dif­fer­ent sta­tions.

They oc­curred on Tues­day (November 22), first at Waltham­stow Cen­tral sta­tion at around 2pm, and again a short while later at Bond Street.

Bri­tish Trans­port Police (BTP) say they are work­ing “tire­lessly” to cap­ture the man re­spon­si­ble, and have is­sued CCTV footage of a per­son they would like to speak to in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dents.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer police con­sta­ble Noel Delpuech-Deasy said: “These are par­tic­u­larly con­cern­ing in­ci­dents and we are work­ing tire­lessly to trace the man re­spon­si­ble.

“Threat­en­ing, at­tack­ing or in­tim­i­dat­ing any­one who uses the rail­way, in­clud­ing mem­bers of staff, is in­ex­cus­able and we will not tol­er­ate it.

“I would urge any­one who has any in­for­ma­tion to con­tact us as soon as pos­si­ble.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can text BTP on 61016, or call 0800 40 50 40 quot­ing ref­er­ence 222 of 25/11/2016. In­for­ma­tion can also be passed to Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
