Police seek clues from pub-goers
DC Mike Ganly of British Transport Police has posted his appeal in this site's forum as officers continue to try to piece together a picture of events leading up to Monday night’s attack.
The 55-year-old local man was mugged on the footbridge from Brookmans Park station to the village as he walked home having got off the 23:11 from London. Click here to read about that incident.
Writing in this site's forum, DC Mike Ganly thanks everyone who has posted responses in the forum and has appealed for people to continue to contact him with information.
"I am eager to receive telephone calls from anyone with specific information about the three males on Monday and/or Wednesday this week.
"On the Monday night the three suspects stole property from this reported victim and then immediately went to the railway station. They boarded a southbound train service and were involved in a second incident on the train before they left. They were chased off by rail staff (who acted very professionally) at Potters Bar.
"The three males were in Brookmans Park Village for a period of time on Monday night, and I would like to hear from anyone who left the pub between 2230hrs and 2300hrs, or anyone who perhaps visited the area of the Green around that same time," he wrote.
Anyone who was in the area of Bradmore Green in the time leading up to the attack and saw three youths fitting the description or anything else suspicious can contact British Transport Police on 020 7320 0938 or the local police on 0845 33 00 222.
British Transport Police are also investigating a report that youths were lying in wait for commuters getting off the 23.11 train on Wednesday night. In the second incident a man was followed but not spoken to or mugged.
The man, who has also been interviewed by police, suspected he escaped being attacked because two commuters got off the train and he was not at the station alone. Click here to read about the second incident.
