BRITISH Transport Police (BTP) is asking the public to try and help them identify these three men following an assault on a train.

The incident happened at 11.45pm on February 5 on a train travelling between King's Cross and Hatfield when a man returning to Letchworth GC suffered a broken jaw and a chipped tooth in the attack.

BTP said the victim had gone to the toilet and left his bag on the seat and when he returned he found the three men going through the contents.

After objecting to what was happening the man was assaulted leaving him with the injuries. The three men got off at Hatfield station while the victim left the train at Welwyn Garden City where police were called.

The three men wanted for questioning are believed to have boarded the train at Finsbury Park.

"We are continuing to investigate this incident, which can only be characterised as a violent, unprovoked attack on a lone passenger," said DC Steve McBride, who is investigating the incident.
