A young man was pushed onto Tube track at Bond Street station in late-night row, British Transport Police have confirmed.

The man was pushed onto tracks at Bond Street station on June 9, and the man was injured before himself back onto platform.

Incident followed a row inside the station shortly after 10pm.

British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for witnesses after a man was pushed onto the tracks at Bond Street underground station.

We are investigating after a man was pushed onto the tracks on a Jubilee line platform.

Following an argument with another man inside the station a few minutes earlier, the 20-year-old victim was pushed onto the tracks and received cuts and bruises before quickly climbing back onto the platform.

The man, from Lewisham, alerted station staff and BTP were called at 10.13pm.

– Detective Chief Inspector Paul Langley

Officers ensured the man was taken to hospital as a precaution before being taken home. His attacker boarded a Jubilee line train northbound out of the station quickly after the incident.

Detectives from BTP are now appealing for witnesses and will be viewing CCTV from the station as they piece together the suspect’s movements.

He is described as being white, in his early-to-mid-20s, clean shaven, short black hair, around 5ft 7, slim build, wearing black trousers and a light blue shirt.

DCI Langley added: “This was a busy platform in central London and I would urge anyone who witnessed the events at Bond Street to contact us immediately.

“It is vital that we find the person responsible for this shocking offence, and we will do everything we can to identify him and deal with him accordingly.

“Although no trains were approaching on this occasion and he was not seriously injured, the outcome could have been much more serious.

“Currently we believe this was an isolated incident and do not believe there is any wider risk to the public.”
