Railway police are trying to identify a man they would like to speak to in connection with the theft of suitcase from a train travelling between Doncaster and Wakefield.

They have released an image of a man who they believe may have information which can assist the investigation into the theft which took place on Friday, March 21.

PC Gary Reader, the investigating officer, said: “A man boarded the 13.35 London King’s Cross to Leeds service at Doncaster and sat down. Just prior to the train arriving into Wakefield the man removed a suitcase from the luggage rack in the vestibule area of coach B on the service and left the train at Wakefield with the bag.

“When the train arrived into Leeds, the victim, a 39-year-old woman from London, realised her suitcase, which contained a number of personal items including a mini iPad, was missing and contacted police.

“If you recognise the man pictured, who was wearing a distinctive ‘Blur’ branded hooded jumper with the words ‘California’ across the front, then please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting incident reference PSUB/B9 of 4/04/14.
