THESE pictures have been released by British Transport Police (BTP) in a bid to catch thieves who stole a mountain bike from Northfield Station.
The images are of two people who officers want to speak to in connection with the incident, which happened at around 4pm on September 9.
The 27-year-old owner got back to the station to find the specialist men's black mountain bike with a red and white trim had been taken, along with the lock.
It had been secured at the racks at the station.
BTP wants to hear from anyone who witnessed the theft, has seen the bike or who recognise the men in the photographs.
PC Mark Murphy, investigating for BTP, said: "Unfortunately, bicycles remain a desirable target for many thieves at train stations.
"However, BTP is cracking down on this type of crime and we have a dedicated team of officers specifically focused on tackling this issue."
He added the force was undertaking plain clothes and high profile operations to catch thieves in the act and was also working closely with cycle and second hand shops and monitoring online auction sites to make it more difficult for thieves to move stolen bikes on.
"Thieves should also be aware that most cycle racks are covered by CCTV so it’s only a matter of time before we track you down," he added.
Anyone with any information should call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016.
Alternatively, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
In all calls please quote incident reference B3/WWA of 10/10/13.
