British Transport Police are appealing for information after a robbery in Caerphilly.
Between 12.35pm and 12.56pm on Thursday (20th October), the victim, a 19-year-old man, arrived at Aber railway station by train.
He walked along the platform and down the station ramp towards Nantgarw Road where he became aware of a man who started to walk towards him from the bottom of the ramp.
The man bumped into the victim and then threatened him with a knife and demanded he hand over his property.
The offender stole the victim’s wallet and the victim ran towards Nantgarw Road.
The offender is white, approximately 6ft tall, medium build, aged in his twenties, with a brown beard. He was wearing a navy tracksuit and trainers.
Investigating officer, Det Insp Jaci Thomas, said:
“This robbery left the victim suffering from shock. It happened in broad daylight in a public place and it is likely that there were people around who may have seen or heard something, or saw the offender in the station around the time of the offence. I would like to speak to anyone who has any information about the incident.”
