British Transport Police has released a CCTV image of a young man officers would like to speak to about the theft of a bike shortly before 1.30pm on Tuesday, 23 June, at Waterloo station.

Investigating officer PC Jane McGee said: “The victim had left his bike, a black and silver Gary Fisher hybrid with magnesium tyres, worth around £600, secured to a fence next to the station exit for a few minutes while he enquired at the booking office about using the secure bike shed.

“While he was at the booking office, a youth who was leaving the station, spotted the bike. He broke the lock and cycled off on the bike.

“We believe the young man in the CCTV could have vital information about the theft and we urge him or anyone who recognises him to come forward to help with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference PSUB/B2 of 16/07/2015. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
