Police have released the photo of a man they believe can help with their enquiries, after an iPhone was stolen from woman’s pocket at Dalston Kingsland station.

The incident happened at 4.50pm on Monday January 18, after a man kept on bumping into the victim while she was using the ticket machine at the station in Kingsland High Street.

DC Paul Cudby said: “The victim became concerned and she confronted him about his behaviour, at which point he put his hand in her coat pocket and snatched her iPhone before leaving the station.”

He continued: “The man in the image is someone who I think has information about this incident. Who is he?”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference 323 0f 10/02.
