Police appeal after woman threatened on west Cumbria train

Police want to talk to two people after a young woman was threatened on a train.

A man and a woman - who British Transport Police say had clearly been drinking alcohol - were also said to be extremely abusive towards the 21-year-old victim.

Police have released a CCTV image of a couple they are keen to speak to about the incident, which took place shortly before 4pm on Tuesday, December 10.

Pc Stuart Bingham said the man and woman boarded the Northern Rail train at Maryport and sat close to the 21-year-old, from Egremont, who was listening to music.

He added: “Shortly after the train left Maryport the victim felt someone tugging on her earphones and noticed the iPod was missing.

“She challenged the man and woman who both denied taking the iPod and became extremely abusive and threatening.

“The woman then handed over the iPod to the victim, claiming she had found it, but continued to be threatening and abusive.”

The couple left the train at Workington.

Pc Bingham said they were keen to speak to the man and woman and urged anyone who could help their inquiry to call 0800 40 50 40 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“We have conducted a number of enquiries and have managed to isolate the CCTV images of two people we believe have key information about the incident," he added.

Pain for no gain. They're a passing fashion with risk
