Image released after homophobic assault on board train

Officers investigating an incident of homophobic assault on-board a train from Cardiff to Newport are today releasing this CCTV image in connection.

At around 11pm on 21 November, an altercation took place on the train between two groups of passengers.

As the train neared Newport station, one of the men walked past the other group again and without notice, punched the victim in the face causing injury. The victim’s friends intervened, and the man proceeded to verbally abuse them and make homophobic comments towards the victim.

Officers believe the man in the CCTV image may have information which could help their investigation.

If you recognise him, or have any information, please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 598 of 21/11/21.
