The British Transport Police have released a CCTV image of a man officers would like to speak to after an incident at Swansea railway station.

Officers were called to the station on Friday after reports of a person being aggressive and verbally abusive towards staff and members of the public.

At around 6.45pm, a passenger walked into Swansea station and started shouting and swearing at various members of the public.

Station staff intervened and the man immediately turned his aggression towards them before boarding a train.

He was asked to leave the service after continuing to behave in an aggressive manner, at which point he further verbally abused and threatened a member of staff to the point that the victim feared for his safety. The aggressor then left the station and got in a taxi.

This was a totally unprovoked attack on members of staff simply doing their job and members of the public who were innocent bystanders. Clearly, the behaviour of this individual was extremely concerning and entirely unacceptable.

The man officers would like to speak to in connection with the incident is described as white, aged in his 40s, around 5ft 6in, bald and of a slim build. He was wearing a white top with a blue jacket and dark trousers, and spoke with a Welsh accent.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
