British Transport Police are appealing for information after people reported seeing a priest assaulted at South Ealing underground station this morning.

The force received numerous calls at around 9:30am this morning to say a group of around three or four young people had punched a man in the face.

Due to his clothing, it is believed he was a priest and may have been travelling with a group of clergymen.

“We’ve had a number of reports of a nasty assault taking place this morning and so have launched an investigation to find out what happened. We’re appealing for anyone who may have seen the incident taking place, or to the victim himself. Please come forward, as this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and it is important we locate the offenders.”

– PC Kevin Buck, Investigating officer

Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting 96 of 11 May.
