Passenger stabbed on train departing from Dalston Kingsland Station
A 36-year-old passenger was stabbed by a stranger on a train last Wednesday (April 4), and now detectives have released this CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.
British Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for information after a man from Kentish Town was attacked on a train between Dalston Kingsland and Canonbury at about 9.30pm.
The incident happened after the suspect and the victim accidentally collided as the suspect – who was having a heated phone conversation at the time – boarded the London Overground at Dalston Kingsland.
Det Con Tony Gittins said the pair had a “verbal altercation”, but the victim then made his way further down the carriage.
“However, the suspect followed him before pulling out what is thought to be a knife,” Det Con Gittins said.
