BTP calls for public assistance after inappropriate comments at Crewe rail station

British Transport Police has released the CCTV image of a man officers would like to speak to about an incident at Crewe rail station.

The incident happened shortly before 12.30pm on Tuesday, 19 March, as a teenage boy was climbing the steps from platform five.

Whilst on the steps the boy was approached by a man, who appeared to have come from a London Midland service from London Euston, who made inappropriate comments before returning to the platform.

PC Andy Gilbert said: “The boy was shocked by the man’s comments and was left shaken by the incident.

“At no stage did the man threaten the youngster, but his comments were unwanted and inappropriate and it is important that we trace him to speak to him about his actions.

“Early investigations have revealed the man boarded a train heading to Preston and we believe he later travelled on to Liverpool.”

PC Gilbert added: “As part of the investigation we have isolated the image of a man we believe may have key information about the offence.

“If you recognise him, or have any other information about the incident, please call BTP as soon as possible.”

If you can assist the investigation please call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. In all calls please quote log B9/NWA of 2/4/13.
