The victim of a late night attack in Morden station has appealed for help in finding his assailant.

Mark Morris was on his way home from a night out when all of a sudden he was knocked unconscious.

"I don't even remember getting in the ambulance," he said.

"This woman saw me looking over at her and came over and said ‘my friend likes you’.

"So I went over to her and started talking to her how her evening was."
But Mr Morris said another couple on the train took offence to this and thought he had overstepped his boundaries.

"We pulled up to Morden so I said my goodbyes and went to get my bag and get off the train.

"As I was getting off, this couple followed me and started calling me a pervert.

"I explained how we were just talking then out of the blue he started attacking me on the platform."

The Raynes Park man was left unconscious and spent the night in hospital.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said they were called to the station just before 2am on July 29 following reports of an assault.

"Police and paramedics were quickly on scene and a man in his forties was taken to hospital where he was treated for injuries," he said.

"Thankfully, his injuries are not believed to be serious and he was later discharged following treatment."

"Numerous enquiries are underway, including seizing available CCTV and speaking with witnesses."

Mr Morris is appealing for anyone with information to come forward to help avoid similar incidents happening in the future.

"The next time he does it, it could be a fatality," he added.

Anyone who was at Morden station and saw what happened is asked to contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 68 of 29/07/2018. 

No arrests have been made at this stage.
