A CCTV image of a man officers said might have “important information” has been released.
The 22-year-old victim had just left the station when a man walked past, stabbing her arm in Stephenson Street. The incident occurred at about 08:30 GMT on Christmas Eve.
She was stabbed “with what appeared to be a needle”, British Transport Police (BTP) said.
He said: “Understandably, the woman was extremely distressed by this incident.”
PC Don Whyte said: “The victim had just left the station, when a man walking past her stabbed her in the arm with what appeared to be a needle. “He then walked off hurriedly, leaving his victim with a small puncture wound.” “I believe the man in the images has important information about this incident.”
This is not the first needle attack around New Street Station. If you recognise the man in the image, please help the Police and stop this madness.
