Armed trespasser boards Peckham train: Tasered by police

Police tasered an armed trespasser who jumped on board a train in Peckham this afternoon.

The man ran along tracks before climbing onto the 12:45pm train from Beckenham Junction to London Bridge at Queens Road Peckham station.

Passengers praised the driver as some hid in the cab.

The suspect was tasered. Detective Superintendent Nicky Arrowsmith from the Central South Command Unit said: “This incident highlights the challenges that police officers confront on a daily basis.

“I am very proud of the courage and determination of all the officers involved, and pleased that their work helped ensure no member of the public suffered any harm.”
