British Transport Police need the public’s help to identify a man after a robbery on a train between Bickley and Swanley in Kent on Saturday, 8 March. The victim’s mobile phone, Oyster card and cash were taken during the incident, which happened onboard the London Blackfriars to Sevenoaks service.

Detective Constable Ostin Elkins, of BTP’s robbery squad, said: “The 14-year-old boy was sat on his own on the train when at 12.45pm a man boarded at Bickley station and sat next to him."

“The man began verbally abusing him and demanded his mobile phone and wallet. He then took hold of an item in his pocket, when the victim looked he saw what he believed was the handle of a knife. The boy handed over his smartphone and wallet and fled the train at Swanley station at 12.55pm.”
