CCTV and appeal for information after train manager suffers abuse in Truro and St Austell
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for the public’s help to identify a woman they would like to speak to in connection with an incident which took place on a train at Truro and St Austell rail stations.
Officers have today released a CCTV image of a woman they believe will have information which can assist the investigation into the incident which took place between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, June 28.
PC Wayne Frost, investigating officer, said: “The incident took place on board the 9.45pm Penzance – London Paddington sleeper service. A female passenger on board the train became extremely abusive towards train staff.
“She was told to leave the service at St Austell as a result of her behaviour and later caught a train to Liskeard.
“Enquiries to trace the woman have been ongoing but to no avail.
“I would now like to ask for help to identify the woman in this photograph as I believe she can help the investigation.”
Anyone who knows the woman’s identity is asked to contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016. Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
