THREE people have been arrested after a man from Woking died at Guildford train station on Saturday (March 30).
The trio remain in custody on suspicion of murder after 22-year-old Ryan Harrison suffered fatal injuries after being hit by a train at around 11.40pm.
British Transport Police say the victim fell on to the tracks after an altercation on the platform.
Two teenagers, both 19 and from Guildford, were arrested at the scene. The third man later handed himself in at Guildford police station.
Detectives have launched an investigation and are appealing for information about the incident.
Detective Chief Inspector Iain Miller, senior investigating officer, said: “Our thoughts are very much with the man’s family at this acutely difficult time for them. They’re trying to come to terms with what has happened and at this stage, quite understandably, they have asked to be left alone to grieve.
“The station was cordoned off until the early hours of Sunday morning while forensic officers conducted a thorough search and my team of detectives are working to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death, which we are currently treating as suspicious.
“Three men were arrested in connection with the incident and they remain in custody being questioned by detectives.
“Clearly the man’s family will have many questions about the circumstances leading up to his death but at this time the full sequence of events is unclear. However, we will do everything we can to shed light on what took place on Saturday night.
“We’ll be making local enquiries, including checking whether the incident was captured by CCTV cameras, but we know that there were a number of other people at the station at the time and want to hear from them. If you were there and have any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, please get in touch.”
Anyone with any information is urged to contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 571 of 30/03/13.
