TWO men are being sought after a member of rail staff was abused on a train between Prestatyn and Rhyl.
British Transport Police are appealing for information after the incident which took place between 12.50pm and 12.55pm on Friday, September 6.
Investigating officer PC Miles Caine said: “The train guard on the 0920hrs Cardiff to Holyhead service was checking tickets when a mixed race passenger, who had boarded at Prestatyn, refused to co-operate, telling the guard he had a ticket and wasn’t a thief.
“As the guard continued going about his duties, the passenger swore at him and accused him of being racist. Then, as the train arrived at Rhyl, the passenger became aggressive, walking up to the guard and swearing at him a second time, again accusing him of being racist, before leaving the train.”
Having spoken to witnesses and viewed CCTV footage, officers have now identified a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
He is described as mixed race, aged in his 40s, around 5ft 8in, and was wearing a black and white striped top, dark jacket, jeans and a woolly hat.
