West Midlands Police have thanked the woman, who had taken to social media to share her concerns after seeing the incident at Stourbridge Junction on Sunday, November 28, just after 9pm.

The message from the woman spoke of being upset after seeing an elderly man being shouted at and pushed by a younger man and she was so concerned about what she'd seen that she reported the matter to the police.

West Midlands Police have since confirmed they looked into the incident and thanked the woman for getting in touch with her concerns about the incident.
