Police believe this man may have been behind the sneak theft of a passenger’s handbag at St Helens Central train station.

The victim was targeted after leaving her bag unattended for a short period in the station’s booking office.

When she returned the bag had been stolen. CCTV footage captured the suspect fleeing the scene.

Acting Det Chief Insp Andrea Rainey said: “Sadly there is a minority who believe it is acceptable to profit from criminal acts of the misfortune of others and there is little that can be done to dissuade them from this.”
