British Transport Police want to speak to this man after a member of staff at Huddersfield railway station was assaulted at 9 pm on Tuesday, July 16.

PC Sam Bloomfield said: “A man, in the company of a younger man, who we believe may have been his son, was attempting to enter the station to travel without a ticket.

“He was challenged by a member of staff who asked him to purchase a ticket or leave the station on a number of occasions.

“As he left the station he spat a mouthful of biscuits he was eating at the staff member and then threw the biscuit packet at him.

“The man also threw his phone at the victim but missed.

“This was an intimidating and unpleasant experience for a member of staff simply doing their job.

“We do not tolerate abuse such as this and will always do everything in our power to identify and convict anyone who engages in this type of unacceptable behaviour.”
