The British copsa have raised alarm over a dangerous knife-wielding “steaming” gangs are terrorising young commuters for their £200 Apple AirPods and mobiles on the transport network.
British Transport Police today released CCTV images of young men they want to speak to in connection with the robberies.
A report reaching us at Checkout Magazine has it that the muggers have struck at least eight times at rail and Tube stations across London and Essex in the past month.
Detective Chief Inspector Sarah White said: “We have seen a concerning amount of robberies across both the London Underground and mainline rail network in London, and we are working tirelessly to catch those responsible.”
DCI White said: “We have plainclothes officers operating, and passengers can also expect to see highly visible reassurance patrols.
“Everyone should be aware of their surroundings, particularly in the evenings, and of being discreet and secure when carrying their property.
“Typically, we are seeing things like phones, laptops and AirPod earphones being targeted by groups of young men.
