Do you recognise attackers who shoved man off train?
AN unsuspecting passenger had his face smashed and his collar bone broken when he was shoved off a train at Alexandra Palace station
AN unsuspecting passenger had his face smashed and his collar bone broken when he was shoved off a train at Alexandra Palace station.
The 54-year-old Asian man got on the train at Finsbury Park at the same time as two men and a woman who were drinking and acting aggressively.
The victim was standing in the middle of the carriage when he felt one of the group touch his head. To avoid confrontation and without saying a word, he moved down the carriage towards the door.
When the train stopped and the doors opened at Alexandra Palace, the trio walked over to him and pushed him out of the train with great force. He fell face forward onto the platform.
CID this week released pictures of the suspects after the incident on December 6.
Detective Constable Vicky Bladen said: "This was a completely unprovoked attack which left the victim suffering considerable pain and distress.
