A seventeen-year-old boy had his electric scooter and earphones robbed on a train travelling through Elephant and Castle last month.

Today British Transport Police circulated images of a man officers wish to speak with in connection with the incident, saying he could have information that could help the ongoing investigation.

The teenage boy was on a train travelling from West Sutton to Elephant and Castle at 12pm on Tuesday, February 25.

He was approached by a man who asked to see his AirPod earphones.  When the teen put them away in his pocket, the man then asked to see his electric scooter.

After being refused, the man grabbed the scooter, threatening the boy that he had a knife on him, before leaving the train at Elephant and Castle.

If you can identify this man, or witnessed the incident contact British Transport Police via text on 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
