Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak with after a racially aggravated assault on a train in which a head covering was reportedly grabbed.

British Transport Police (BTP) are investigating an incident from around 1pm on December 13, 2023, where a father and son received threatening and anti-Semitic language.

A man, who left the train at Harrow and Wealdstone, previously walked past the father and son but turned back to sit opposite them before using offensive langauge.

As he stood to leave the train, he grabbed the head covering from the son and walked toward the door, police said.

The son attempted to retrieve his head covering, but the man started pulling him out of the train. He was prevented from doing so by the father who intervened.
