Police officers have released CCTV images of a man they are tracing after a man was shouted at and beaten on a train from Birmingham to Cheltenham.
A 41-year-old man from Bath boarded the train at Glasgow Central at 9.25pm on September 2. At Birmingham New Street, another man got on board and sat directly behind the victim.
During the journey, the second man began shouting intimidating comments at the passenger in front, before getting up and punching him several times in the face.
"This would appear to be a totally unprovoked and particularly violent assault, which left the victim suffering facial injuries as well as being shocked by the man’s behaviour.
“Fortunately this type of incident is rare on the rail network, but this is a very serious offence and it is vital that we trace the person responsible.
"We are now in a position to release these images of a man that we believe will have key information about this incident.
“I would ask anyone who recognises the man to come forward. Although he got off the train at Cheltenham Spa, he boarded at Birmingham New Street and we believe he was intending to travel to Bristol, so it may be that he has connections with both of those cities.”

The family of Jane Wiggett, whose body was discovered in Cheltenham in August last year, have thanked everyone for their support. It follows the conviction of her ex-husband Daniel Spencer for her murder. They issued the following statement:
Special thanks to our barrister team and Gloucestershire Police for their hard work and continued support in finding justice for Jane.
People have been very kind to us when we may not have always wanted to speak about Jane.
Jane was very private and would have hated all the attention but she was popular, funny, sensitive, kind, loyal and very protective of her family.
We hope she can now rest in peace knowing that she has been listened to and justice is seen to be done.
