Railway worker racially abused in Chorley
8:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
An image has been released of a man transport police wish to talk to after a member of staff was racially abused at a railway station.
British Transport Police (BTP) officers are appealing for information after the incident at Chorley station.
Police have released images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident as part of their investigation.
PC Peter Wilcock, investigating officer said: “Around 3pm, a man was seen to enter the station by jumping over a wall rather than through the booking office.
“When he was challenged by a member of staff who asked him to buy a ticket for his journey, the man subjected the member of staff to a tirade of racist abuse.”
Officers are following several lines of enquiry into the incident, on Monday, July 15, and have obtained images of a man they believe has information that could assist their investigation.
PC Wilcock continued: “The member of staff was simply trying to do his job and staff should be free to carry out their duties without being subjected to racist abuse such as this.
“We treat these type of incidents very seriously and we will do everything in our power to find who is responsible.”
Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference B4/ NWA of 15/08/2013.
