Hunt For The Man Who Attacked An Oasis Fan At Metro Station

Police have released this CCTV image after an Oasis fan was headbutted during an attack at a Metro station.

The 20-year-old was followed by a man, who had earlier subjected him to intimidating behaviour, after he got off the train at Fellgate in Jarrow.

He had been on his way back from an Oasis concert at the Stadium of Light, with friends, on June 11.

British Transport Police have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the attack.

Pc Gavin Alcorn, the investigating officer, said: "This appears to have been an entirely unprovoked attack on a young man who was simply out enjoying an evening with friends.

"I would urge anyone who recognises the man pictured or who has any information regarding this attack to contact police."

Anyone with information to the identity of the man is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Callers should quote crime reference number C05/086878/09 of 11/06/09.
