Do you recognise this man?
Officers investigating a hate crime on-board a DLR service as it approached Poplar station are releasing CCTV images in connection.
At just after 9pm on Thursday 20 January, the victim was stood by the train’s doors when she was approached by a man who made racial slurs about her head scarf.
A short while later he grabbed her head scarf and tried to pull it off before ripping her rucksack off her back, causing its strap to tear.
Officers believe the man in the CCTV images may have information which could assist their investigation.
If you recognise him, or have any information, please contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 538 of 20/01/22.
Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
