'Frightening' attack on mother and 2-year-old son

A mother has described an attack on her and her two-year-old son as "frightening".

In a statement released by British Transport Police today, the victim, who wished to remain anonymous, said:

This was a really frightening ordeal for me and my son.

I was absolutely terrified when I was dragged to the ground, and all I could think about was my son.

We are now both at home recovering from the attack and I’d like to thank everyone for the support they have given me over the past five days.

I’d plead to anyone who has information to speak to police and help find the man responsible for the attack.
