TRANSPORT police have issued a warning after a man was injured after youths threw a stone at a moving train at a railway station.

British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information after a train passenger was hit in the face by a stone thrown through a window at Sundridge Park rail station.

It is believed that the stone was thrown from a bridge at the station on October 24 where a group of youths were seen before the incident.

PC Luke Hamilton-Wargent said: "The train was passing through the station at around 4.30pm when a stone thrown through an open window struck a man onboard.

"The man suffered cuts to his face and he was fortunate not to have received any further injuries.

"This was an extremely foolish and dangerous act that has resulted in a man being injured.

"Offenders who throw objects at trains not only risk seriously injuring passengers but are risking a prison term."

Anyone with any information should call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, quoting incident number 400 of 24/10/09.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
