Police want to speak to this woman

British Transport Police are appealing for information after reports of an assault and racist comments on a train in Stourbridge.

A large group of men and women, who had been at a festival in Worcester, are reported to have been making racist comments.

A passenger challenged their behaviour and asked them to stop. She was then threatened by a woman from the group.

When the victim went to leave the train at Stourbridge a woman from the group punched her in the face three times. She suffered two black eyes and swelling.

The incident happened at 8.20pm on Saturday, August 10 between Worcester and Stourbridge Junction stations.

Anyone who recognises the woman in the image is asked to contact BTP by texting 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 and quoting reference number 591 of August 10.

Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111.
