Images have been released of a man who British Transport Police believe can help with enquiries into two threats of violence at Bromley train stations.
A 41-year-old man, from Lambeth, was left shocked on January 26 when he was threatened while using the cash machine at Beckenham Junction.
The victim was challenged to a fight for his cash by a man at around 10.30am. He then boarded a train towards Bromley South after the victim refused to hand over his money.
A second incident took place at Clock House three days later when another man was threatened for his mobile phone.
He passed a man on the platform who began to follow him and, once again, used violence as a threat if the victim did not hand over his phone.
DC Gilbert, leading the investigation, said: “Fortunately, neither victim was harmed on each occasion, but both felt the man would carry out his threat of violence and steal their property.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting B6/LSA of 18/03/2013.
