Detectives from British Transport Police are appealing for information after a man received a fractured skull following an assault at Leeds railway station.


The victim, a 19 year-old man from, Bradford, is currently receiving treatment at Leeds General Hospital, where his condition has been described as stable.

Officers have released CCTV footage of two men who they would like to speak to in connection with the incident, which took place near to the ticket barriers on Saturday June 18 at around 10.36pm.

Detective Inspector Stuart Mellish of British Transport Police said: “This was a completely unprovoked attack on a young man who had been on a night out with friends.

“Both the victim and the suspects travelled on the 21.56 Skipton to Leeds service. When they were leaving the station the two men wrestled the victim to the ground then threw numerous kicks and blows to his head.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact police. We are also particularly keen to trace the two men pictured”.

* Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, quoting background reference B7/NEA of 20/06/2011, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
