Jackie Danicki begins her blog post on November 24th with the words I am slightly miffed:

The kid in the picture above doesn’t look very harmful, right? He’s reasonably well-dressed, anyway. But actually, he is quite a large fellow, and likes to assault random women with the help of an equally vile friend of his.

Jackie posted the photograph on her blog and to her Flickr stream as well as passing a copy along to the police. The assault took place on the southbound Bakerloo line platform at Baker Street, and the abuse continued from there to Piccadilly Circus. In an update on Monday she writes:

I got a call from the police this morning, who told me that the same two scumbags who attacked me also beat up a gay guy and knocked his tooth out.

If you recognise the guy you can contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.

Similar assaults in the USA have led to a network of blogs dedicated to 'outing' the abusers such as hollabacknyc.
