POLICE have issued an appeal to find two yobs who held train station staff at knife-point during a 'traumatising' robbery.
A 32-year-old woman was opening the station office at Kent House during the early hours of the morning when the thieves attacked her. She was tackled to the ground and threatened as one of the men held a knife to her throat on November 15 last year.
The men demanded she open the booking office door. Once inside, one of the men punched her in the face before they grabbed cash boxes and left.
Robbery squad PC Oliver Gilbert, said: "The incident was extremely traumatising for the member of staff who although has managed to resume work is still understandably affected by her ordeal.
"We are following a number of leads but have released a CCTV image of a man dressed in dark clothing and a high-visibility jacket who we would like to speak with in relation to this incident."
If you are the pictured man or if you know his identity, contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.
