CCTV has been released in connection with an incident where a man rode a horse into Windsor and Eton Riverside Station and threatened station staff.
At about 3pm on Sunday, January 4, a man on horseback rode into the booking hall and headed towards the platforms.
Detective Constable Rod Harbron, leading the investigation, said: “When challenged by a member of station staff, he racially abused them and threatened to assault them with a riding crop.”
The 32-year-old staff member called the police.
British Transport Police (BTP) has released a CCTV image in an attempt to identify a man they believe will be able to assist their investigation.
DC Harbron added: “A busy railway station is no place for horses and rail operators have every right to refuse access to people with animals under the railway byelaws.
"The member of staff was just doing their job and racial abuse and threats will not be tolerated.
“Who is the man on the pony? If you recognise him, please get in touch.”
Call BTP on 0800 405040, or text 61016, quoting reference B9(S-SUB) of 25/02/2015 with information.
