Video: Police appeal after Horsham man headbutted

BRITISH Transport Police detectives have released CCTV footage after a man headbutted a passenger from Horsham queuing for coffee at London Bridge station.

Investigators have released images of the incident today (Thursday) in a bid to identify and track down the man responsible.

The incident took place around 10.45pm on Friday December 17 as the victim, a 34-year-old, waited at a Café Nero kiosk.

As the victim queued to be served, a man in front turned around and headbutted him – with CCTV footage capturing the incident.

After being held back by another passenger, the man fled and was last seen making his way down a flight of stairs towards platforms three and four.

The attack left the victim with a bloodied and bruised nose, a spokesman for BTP said.

PC Helen Magill, the investigating officer, said: “This was a vicious attack and we want to hear from anyone who recognises the man pictured, as he is wanted for questioning.

“We have made a number of enquiries as part of our investigation but to no avail so far. If you are the man in the footage, or recognise him, I urge you to get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting incident B4/LSA of 02/02/11.
