The two employees left the shop and told a male member of staff at the station what happened.
He went into the shop and saw the man leaving through the back door with a box of crisps.
The male member of staff then gave chase to the man who threw the box and climbed over the gate into platform one, and after a brief struggle between the two, made his escape crossing the lines between four platforms.
PC Wilson continued: “The man’s behaviour was incredibly intimidating and distressing for the women involved.”
