CCTV images have been released of a man British Transport Police would like to talk to in connection with the theft of bike parts at Huntingdon train station.
The victim, a 60-year-old man, had left his bike at the station at about 7.45am on Sunday, September 6. When he returned later that day at 4.30pm, he found the gear mechanism had been taken from his bike.
BTP PC Chris Thompson-Chambers, the investigating officer, said: "I am appealing for anyone who recognises the young man in the CCTV images to contact police.
"We believe that the individual may also be able to assist us with our enquiries into other cycle crimes that have occurred at Huntingdon station this year."
"Unfortunately cycles are a popular target for thieves and it is important to remember to register your bike and ensure a solid lock is used to secure it.
"If a bike is adequately marked, it makes it much easier to identify and therefore reduces its desirability to thieves."
