CCTV image released after woman has beer poured over head at Seaforth and Litherland

British Transport Police (BTP) officers have today released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to after a woman had a can of beer poured over her.

The incident happened at about 10.30pm on Thursday, 19 December, last year as the 33-year-old woman made her way from Birkdale to Seaforth and Litherland.

PC Gordon Sharp said: “As the woman got off the train she noticed a man was also in the process of getting off behind her.

“As she stepped onto the platform the man suddenly, and without warning, poured a can of beer over her head.

“Thankfully the woman wasn’t injured, but she was extremely upset and shocked.”

Since the incident BTP officers have followed a number of lines of enquiry and have managed to isolate the CCTV image of a man they believe may have key information.

PC Sharp added: “I think the man captured on CCTV holds information which could be crucial in this case and I appeal to anyone who recognises him to get in touch.”

If you can help please call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. In all calls please quote log NWA/B4 of 17/2/14
