and sadly this is why people avoid intervening because you are very likely to be set upon yourself. I tried to help a pregnant woman who was being practically sat on on the train by a Dutch man and his wife and the guy completely flipped and became very aggressive towards me and the pregnant woman. Not one other person said or did a thing.

This is happening way to much on the trains. I hate traveling on my own. Feel unsafe and I'm sure I am not alone feeling like this. I Hope the Young man recovers soon. Thank you for trying and so sorry you got hurt.

Scum! Hope they are caught and sent to prison. Typical pack behaviour, bet they wouldn't be so tough on their own.

IF they get caught, do NOT rely on Crown Prosecution Service to have them dealt with in court. I was assaulted when Working on the railway, with me needing treatment in A&E, but this lot FAILED to even let BTP know the court hearing date. My assailant got off Scott Free.

These are the kind of scum that should be jailed for the rest of their lives. Or at least forty years. This would act as a detterent, would prevent them attacking others, and stop them breeding more of their kind.
When will the courts start protecting us?

So lets get this right. There are very clear CCTV images, the guy walks into a Police station with his hands up, and is arrested on suspicion.

He needs to make his admission before the courts to be deemed guilty..
