TRAIN passengers who may have witnessed a man being glassed are being urged to come forward.

A man was hit with a glass on the back of his head as he travelled on the 8.50pm Fenchurch Street to Shoebury service on Saturday, December 28.

British Transport Police detectives are investigating.

The victim was a 44 year old man from Stratford and both he and his attacker got off at Grays at 9.25pm Det Con David Bishop said: “Whilst on the train, the victim began to engage in a conversation with another passenger.

“At first the conversation between the two men was amicable, with the victim sharing a drink with the man.

“The conversation turned hostile however and, as the victim stepped back to move away, the man used the glass he was holding to hit the victim on the back of the head.”

Both men left at Grays station where the suspect made off.

Police were called and the victim later attended hospital where he was treated with stitches for the wound.

The man is described as white, aged between 28 and 35, with fair hair. He was of slim but athletic build and was dressed casually in a red top and jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 quoting incident number LNA/B6 of 30/12/2013 or Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
