British Transport Police are looking for two men after a passenger was attacked on a train.
The victim asked passengers to stop smoking on the train. He was then assaulted and punched repeatedly.
The victim left the train at New Eltham. Police state men boarded the train at 12:45am on the Charing Cross to Gravesend service.
Looking at timetables it appears they would have boarded at Lee if it was 12:45am on the service which left London Bridge at 12:18am.
After being attacked the victim got off at New Eltham station.
Being a Southeastern Metro service, there are no staff on trains aside from the driver and it’d be extremely rare to find staff at any stations at that time of day away from London terminals.
The lack of staffing on trains and at many station does little for safety on Metro routes.
If you recognise them, or have any information contact police by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 36 of 10/10/21.
