Train stab­bing: man charged with mur­der

Rail (UK) - - News -

A man has been charged with mur­der after an in­ci­dent aboard South Western Rail­way’s 1258 Guild­ford-Lon­don Water­loo train on Jan­uary 4.

Dar­ren Shane Pen­cille (35), from Farn­ham, is charged with mur­der and pos­ses­sion of an of­fen­sive weapon in con­nec­tion with the fa­tal in­ci­dent. Chelsea Mitchell (27), also from Farn­ham, is charged with as­sist­ing an of­fender.

The vic­tim, 51-year-old Lee Pomeroy, was on his way to Lon­don with his teenaged son when the mur­der hap­pened.

Po­lice were called to Hors­ley sta­tion at 1315 after a re­port that a man had been stabbed, and found Pomeroy with stab wounds. De­spite the ef­forts of of­fi­cers and paramedics, he died at the scene.

Pas­sen­gers on the train took to Twit­ter to praise the ac­tions of staff, with the driver the first to tend to Pomeroy.

Pomeroy’s fam­ily said on Jan­uary 5: “Lee would have had his birth­day to­day but did not get to see his presents. He was an hon­est, bright per­son who loved mu­sic, he knew history and art and was a bach­e­lor of sci­ence.”
