The incident happened on the train between Birmingham Moor Street and Solihull Station.

British Transport Police (BTP) have issued a CCTV image of a man they believe will have information which can assist the investigation.

The altercation occurred on January 18 at 8.10am when a man picked up another passenger's bag from a seat and threw it across the table so he could sit in the seat.

PC Jas Bathal, investigating officer, said: "Enquiries are ongoing to trace the man responsible and I am now seeking to identify and speak to the man in this photograph about this incident.

"He is described as being dark-skinned, of stocky build, aged 40 to 50, around 5ft 9in, with short, black hair.

"He was wearing a dark coat and carrying a rucksack."
