Police searching for gang of youths who had row with couple over pram
POLICE want to find a gang of youths who spat in the face of a mother and attacked a father on a train in a row over a pram.
The incident took place on a Northern Rail train between Appley Bridge and Wigan Wallgate on Tuesday, May 29.
Between 5.45pm and 6.10pm, the father of the baby asked a group of youths to be careful as they had previously knocked the pram. This request led to a verbal argument and the group making threats to the family.
The boys then threw a bottle at the father, kicked him on his side after he fell to the floor and spat in the mother’s face.
Officers would like to speak to the boys in these CCTV images as they believe they may have information which could help the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact BTP by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016, with reference 523 of May 29. Or people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
