Police in Nottingham want to speak to this man regarding an assault on a pregnant woman on a tram in the city centre
Police have released CCTV pictures in the hunt for a drunk thug who attacked a pregnant woman on a tram as she tried to help another passenger.
The 26-year-old mother-to-be intervened after the lout stormed onto a tram in broad daylight and started harassing a member of the public.
The pregnant woman was attacked by the yob between 11.50pm and 12.15pm on the Clifton South tram in Nottingham on July 20.
Luckily, the woman’s unborn baby was not harmed during the assault which happened near the Wilford Lane area of the city.
Nottinghamshire Police have released CCTV images of the suspect.
Police Community Support Officer Jodie Turner said: ‘This was an unprovoked attack on a vulnerable victim who was pregnant at the time of the assault and who was only trying to protect another member of the public.
‘But thankfully her pregnancy did not suffer as a result of this assault.
‘Our enquiries are ongoing into this matter and we are working hard to try and identify the offender responsible.
‘We would like to speak with anyone who may recognise this man or who saw anything on the tram on the evening of the incident.
‘We would urge anyone with any information to get in contact with us as we believe it may assist us with our investigation.’
A Nottingham Express Transit spokesman added: ‘Fortunately incidents such as this are extremely rare on the tram, which is one of the safest forms of transport.
‘However we take any incidents very seriously and work closely with the police to identify those responsible.’
Anyone with who recognises the man is urged to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 521 of 20 July 2021, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
