British Transport Police would like to trace these men after the theft at Leeds railway station.

Police are appealing for help to identify two men they would like to speak to after money and credit cards were stolen from a handbag dropped by a passenger while running for a train at Leeds railway station.

British Transport Police believe the men shown in these photographs will have information which can assist the investigation into the incident which took place at about 10.30pm on Friday June 6 2014.

PC Mark Stokes, the investigating officer, said: “A 48-year-old woman was running for her train across the over bridge at the station when she accidentally dropped her handbag.

“Two men walking behind her picked up her bag and rummaged though it before stealing approximately £100 cash and two credit cards from her purse. They then discarded her handbag.

“Enquiries have been ongoing to identify the two men responsible but to no avail. I am now appealing for anyone who recognises the men in these photographs to come forward as I believe they will have information which can assist the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 405040 or text 61016, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
