Detectives have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to after a schoolboy was robbed in Wembley Park train station.

The 15-year-old victim was forced to hand over the £2 he had in his wallet and his phone after he was threatened by a man who had initially asked him for £1.

Detective Constable Carl Wayte said: “While the amount stolen in this incident was relatively small, the victim felt intimidated and was left in no doubt the man was prepared to use violence.”

The robbery took place on the northbound Jubilee Line platform on November 16 at 8.20am
