Police seek witnesses who helped Ilford victim of baseball bat assault and robbery on train
British Transport Police (BTP) are seeking witnesses to a violent attack and robbery on a 23-year-old Ilford man travelling by train on the Shenfield to Liverpool Street service.
The attack, which took place on March 11 between Maryland and Stratford stations, shortly after 1.50pm, saw the victim robbed and violently assaulted by a man wielding a small baseball-type bat.
The victim was travelling with his girlfriend when they were approached by two young men and a young woman on the platform at Ilford Station.
Det Con Jon Howlett said: “The trio then boarded the train alongside the victim and his girlfriend.
“As the train was travelling between Maryland and Stratford, the victim was violently attacked by one of the men. The second man then took money from the victim’s pocket, before all three left the train at Stratford.”
