Police issue witness plea over Chippenham railway assault
Updated 1:18pm Friday 21st February 2014 in News
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for new information and for witnesses to come forward and speak to them about an incident at Chippenham railway station.
Two months on from the incident taking place on Saturday, December 21, officers are in a position to release new CCTV stills of a man they would like to identify and speak to about the incident which happened on the footbridge at the station at about 10.30pm.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Richard Day, said: “The victim, a 33-year-old man from Chippenham, was returning home from a night out when he was assaulted on the footbridge. This resulted in him falling to the floor and causing injuries to his face.
“We have spoken to a number of witnesses and examined CCTV footage from in and around the station, but have yet to identify the person responsible for the apparently unprovoked attack.
“Two months on, I am looking to jog the memories of anyone who was at the location at the time of the offence to see if there is any new information they can offer.
“I am also now in the position to release CCTV images of a man who I believe will have key information about the incident.
“I would urge anyone who knows the man, or if you recognise yourself in these pictures, to come forward and contact BTP straight away.”
Anyone with information should call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
In all calls please quote incident reference WWA/B4 of 21/02/14.
