According to British Transport Police (BTP), the owner of the phone is a 34-year-old woman from East Molesey.
She went to collect her bag from Guildford station and found a note from Mr Parker explaining why her phone was missing. She then called BTP to report the incident.
Detective Sergeant Daren Bates said: “We’d like to thank Mr Parker for bringing this to our attention and pay tribute to his quick-thinking in capturing this man’s actions on video.
“The incident is being investigated and we’ll do all we can to identify the man responsible for this very shameless and brazen theft.
“If you recognise the man pictured in the image, or have any information that could assist our investigation, we want to hear from you.”

This is socialism in action, he was making a political statement. He was not taking it from the woman he was giving it to himself.

If this happened in the US, he would have been on the ground with a few missing teeth, and the witnesses would claim that he tripped on the subway car. Piece of human filth that guy is.
I would have personally gotten him into a headlock until he passed out, returned the phone, and THEN called the cops. Crooks make me so angry.

The headlock, would probably be viewed as reasonable force. as it's a restraint. The "until they passed out", would be classed as assault, unless you could justify the act by proving you were in fear of your life.
