Police officers are appealing for help in identifying a man after a family were threatened with violence on a train.
Officers also want to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, which happened on Sunday June 22 onboard the 2.47pm Manchester Piccadilly to Huddersfield service.
PC Ruth Miller from British Transport Police said: “Shortly after the train left Manchester, a man began verbally abusing a 33-year-old woman and her three children as they passed through the carriage. This abuse continued for several minutes, with him threatening violence towards the woman and her 15-year-old daughter.
“The man left the train at Huddersfield.”
Officers have released CCTV images of a man they’d like to speak to in relation to the incident.
PC Miller added: “I’m keen to trace the man pictured, as I think he could have important information that would assist the investigation. I’d also like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident.
“The whole family were understandably very shaken and upset by what happened. Every passenger has the right to travel without the fear of abuse and this sort of behaviour will not be tolerated.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 405040, or text 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B9 of 15/07/2014.
