British Transport Police (BTP) has released CCTV footage of the moment a man pulls out a large knife during a fight at Moor Street Station.
The three-man brawl was captured on camera at the ticket barrier at Moor Street station, at around 7:15PM on Thursday 25th August. During the fight, one of the men is seen falling to the floor and then pulls out whats to be believed to be a 12 inch kitchen knife.
Officers investigating are making an urgent plea for anyone who knows the men, who are all black and believed to be in their 20s, to contact police.
PC Shane Whitehouse, said: “Anyone who is willing to carry a knife and brandish it in such a public place needs to be found and taken off the streets.
“Thankfully, incidents like this on the railway in Birmingham are rare and we are not aware of anybody being injured as a result of what happened.
“Anyone who carries a knife is likely to be stabbed themselves and many victims often find their own knife is grabbed and used against them in an attack.
“Someone out there will know who these men are and I would urge them to do the right thing and contact us with their names.”
BTP supports West Midlands Police ‘He’s not coming home’ campaign, which appeals to mothers of young men to speak to their sons about the dangers of carrying a knife.
