British Transport Police has released a CCTV image of a man officers would like to speak to in connection with an assault at Walkden rail station.
The incident happened shortly before 1.30pm on 24 November on-board a train travelling towards Manchester.
PC Kris Catterall said: “The victim, a 49-year-old man from Wigan, was on the train when it came to stop at Walkden station.
“AS the doors open to allow passengers onto the service a man and woman steped up from the platform and, without warning, the man punched the victim repeatedly to the face causing cuts and bruises.”
