Ian Tomlinson threw a brick at victim's head knocking him onto train tracks is Jailed indefinitely

A man who threw a brick at another's head forcing him to fall onto a train track has been jailed indefinitely.

Ian Tomlinson, 24, of no fixed address, carried out three attacks on men at Ipswich, Diss and Colchester train stations over a ten-day period in June last year.

On one occasion Tomlinson followed his victim off the train at Colchester shortly after midnight.

As the man waited on the platform, Tomlinson threw a brick at his head from close range.

The victim fell onto the tracks where he lay unconscious and motionless on the high-speed line.

As he lay there, Tomlinson climbed onto the track and stole money from him, British Transport Police said.

The other attacks took place at Diss and Ipswich. Read More
