British Transport Police would like to speak to this man after a man was assaulted and knocked unconscious whilst waiting for a train at Leeds railway station.

The incident took place on Saturday November 1 at around 7.45pm

Det Con Tom Eastwood said: “The victim, a 24-year-old man, was on platform 15 at the station waiting to catch a train with two of his friends.

“He was approached from behind by a man who then punched him once in the face causing him to fall to the ground where he was knocked unconscious.

“The attacker ran off and boarded a train to Manchester Victoria, which called at Bramley, New Pudsey and Bradford Interchange before arriving into Manchester, so it may be the man may reside in one of these areas.

“The assault resulted in the victim’s jaw being broken in two places. This is completely unacceptable behaviour and we must trace the person responsible. We believe the man pictured may be able to assist with our enquiries into this incident. If you recognise him please contact us.”
