The appeal comes after a man was approached by two men at the station at about 1.50pm on Tuesday, August 3.

They started chatting to him before one of the pair pulled out a flick knife and demanded his belongings.

He stabbed him in his upper arm after punching the victim in the head.

The two robbed him of his hat and bag, but when he refused to give them his jacket, one of the men stabbed him in his thigh. The men then fled.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesperson said: "The victim was taken to hospital for treatment, thankfully, his injuries were not life-threatening or life-changing."
