British Transport Police officers investigating the theft of a passenger’s suitcase from a train travelling between Corby and Wellingborough stations have released images of a man they would like to speak to about the incident.
Officers believe the man in the photographs may have information which can assist the investigation into the theft, which took place shortly after 1pm on Monday, June 2, on a Leicester to London St Pancras train.
Investigating officer PC Nick Fowler said: “The victim, a 29-year-old woman from Gretton, had boarded the service and placed her suitcase, which contained a number of personal items, in the luggage rack in Coach B.
“When she checked on her case at Wellingborough she discovered it was missing.
“After reviewing CCTV we noticed a man, accompanied by a pregnant woman, boarded the train at Kettering empty-handed.
“A short while later the same man left Wellingborough station carrying a bag matching the description of the victims.
“We are now releasing images of this man in the hope that someone may recognise him? If you recognise him please contact us.”
