Police want to speak to this man after a woman, 36, was assaulted at Huddersfield railway station.

The incident took place at 4.15pm on Saturday, July 27 after the female member of rail staff was barged out of the way.

Police Constable Jon Holt, the investigating officer, said: “The victim, a 36-year old female member of rail staff from Huddersfield, approached an agitated man who had attempted to barge his way through the barriers in the station.

“When she tried to attempt to calm the man down he grabbed her by the arm, pushed her backwards and verbally abused her.

PC Holt added: “This was an unpleasant physical attack on a member of rail staff who was simply trying to do her job. We will not tolerate behaviour and abuse such as this and will always seek to trace and convict anyone who engages in this type of unacceptable behaviour. I would urge anyone who may recognise the man, or know his current whereabouts to contact us”
