British Transport Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to after a woman’s phone was stolen at Emerson Park railway station.
The 33-year-old woman from Grays, boarded the 3.12pm train from Romford to Upminster and was sitting towards the first carriage with her back to the direction of travel on Tuesday December 4 last year.
She was using her phone while waiting for the train to depart, when without warning a man snatched it and ran out of the train as the doors were closing.
The phone was a black Samsung Galaxy worth £250.
