WITNESSES are being sought following a common assault at Barnsley Interchange.

On July 26, a teenage girl is reported to have grabbed a man’s earphones from his ears and thrown his phone onto the floor following an argument on platform two at the train station.

Following this, the girl, who has since been identified by police, boarded a train to Leeds.

However, British Transport Police have asked witnesses to come forward so they can establish the full circumstances behind the incident.

A spokesman said: “If you saw the incident contact BTP by texting 61016, or by calling 0800 405040 and quoting reference number 516 of July 26.”
