Police want to speak to two men after a young couple were allegedly assaulted and pushed on to the tracks at a London railway station.

The incident occurred at Turkey Street station in Enfield, north London on 2 April and photos of the men police wish to speak to have now been released.

A man in his twenties was with his girlfriend, who was boarding a train for central London, when two men got off the same train and allegedly assaulted the young man.

In an attempt to help her boyfriend, the woman, also in her twenties, got off the train but was then attacked as well, according to police.

When the train pulled out of the station the couple were allegedly pushed on to the tracks.

The attackers then took the woman’s phone and fled the scene. During the attack the woman’s wrist was broken and the man sustained a broken nose.

Detective Sergeant Karina Ghersinich said: “This was an appalling attack of the kind which is thankfully extremely rare on the rail network.

“It is absolutely vital we find those responsible. As part of our investigation we have spoken to people at the station and the surrounding area.

“We have also analysed CCTV, and I think the men in the image we are issuing today can help with our enquiries. Please tell us who they are.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police.
