Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenage girl was attacked by a large group of youths in a “frightening ordeal” at West Ham station.
Officers were called after the 17-year-old was approached while changing trains at 10.30pm on Saturday, October 24.
The group surrounded her but as the girl tried to get away, she was pushed to the floor and insulted.
Police have now released an image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the assault.
“Fortunately she sustained only minor cuts and bruises, but this was an extremely frightening ordeal,” said Det con Michael Hatcher, from the British Transport Police.
