Police seek 'bunny girl' over unprovoked Birmingham train attack


A woman dressed as a bunny girl is one of four people police are searching for in connection with an unprovoked attack on a train.

British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information after a group of friends from Worcester returning from a night out in Birmingham were assaulted on board a stationary train at Birmingham Moor Street railway station.

Officers have today released CCTV images of three men and a woman - dressed in a 'bunny girl' suit - they wish to identify as they believe they may be able to assist with their enquiries into the assault, which took place at about 6.10am on Saturday, 2 November 2013.

PC Brendan Gilbride, the investigating officer, said: "A group of 12 friends, who had enjoyed a night out in Birmingham, boarded a Worcester-bound train at Moor Street railway station at around 6.10am on Saturday, 2 November.

"Soon afterwards, members of the group were subjected to an unprovoked assault by another group who were on the same train.

"The train driver managed to split the two groups up and the victims left the train, while the offenders remained on the service, alighting at Old Hill rail station.

"Enquiries have been ongoing to trace those responsible and I would now ask members of the public to come forward with information if they know the identity of any of the people in these photographs. We believe all four will have key information which can assist the investigation."

Anyone with information should contact British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting incident reference WWA/B8 of 13/12/2013. Alternatively, information can be passed to the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
