WHEN two thugs bashed and robbed a fellow train passenger, they forgot the fact that the police would be able to get a good look at their mugs with the click of a button.

Police are now calling for the public's help in locating the two men in relation to the attack on an Ipswich train on Monday.

The victim, an 18-year-old man, was travelling from Rosewood to Ipswich about 12.40pm, when he was confronted by the two as they approached the Thomas St station at Sadliers Crossing.

He was punched in the face and fell to the floor, with the offenders taking his wallet.

Both men are described as being aged between 18 and 23 years old and about 175cm tall.
