Teens robbed on train: Suspects left at Kidbrooke station

Police are looking for two men in relation to a robbery involving a knife on a train from Charing Cross to Kidbrooke.

The incident occurred on Friday 16th April at around 10pm.

Two teenage boys on the train were approached by two men, with one opening their bag to show a knife inside.

According to police the men “proceeded to punch the victims before quickly taking their Canada Goose coat and Gucci side bag. The men immediately got off the train at Kidbrooke station following the incident.”

    Thank you for alerting us John Smith.

    The Police need to get this information out to the public much quicker so people can certianly be aware and more vigilant while travelling and at the station.

    Also the suspects can hopefully be caught a lot quicker.

    I hope the teenagers will in time recover from this awful attack.

    This is another reason while we need more staff employed on the trains and at stations through out the day and evening from first to last trains.

    This is exactly why we need more stop and search carried out by the Police. Police must be allowed to go about their work with out interference. from others if we are to ever tackle knife crme on the streets of London to save young lives.

    I also echo the call for more staff to be employed on trains and at stations along wth better lighting and CCTV.

    I don’t understand why Canada goose coats are such a sought after item. It reminds me of the case in Walthamstow where a son died defending his mother when some thugs broke in to steal Canada goose jackets. They look like thuggish/ASB youth fashion in my opinion. Not very classy. Unfortunately because the conservatives have made cuts to police for over a decade now, there are simply not enough officers on the streets. There is no way public services can tackle this unless this government actually funds public services rather than hand out private contracts to their mates.
