'Unprovoked' attack at train station leaves man with broken ankle

Police are looking for witnesses after a group of approximately 13 youths attacked a man and his step-son at Guiseley train station, leaving the man with a broken ankle.

Officers say boys and girls aged between 15 and 18 were involved in the 'unprovoked' attack which happened at around 8.15pm on Friday 18 December.

It is believed one of the boys in the group ran across the track and the victim’s son, age 23 from Bradford, approached him to tell him to stop explaining how dangerous it was.

The rest of the group circled the man and punched him to the ground. When his step dad attempted to intervene, he was also attacked resulting in him suffering a broken ankle.

This was a totally unprovoked and uncalled for attack which left the victim with a serious injury requiring hospital treatment. The victim and his son were only attempting to advise one of the member of the group about his dangerous actions and certainly shouldn’t have been subjected to this unacceptable and violent behaviour on the rail network and we are determined to find those responsible.
