A woman screamed homophobic abuse at a man on a Tube before spitting in his face in a shocking incident captured on camera.
The woman shouts ‘because you’re gay I’m going to violate you’ before telling others ‘I don’t care, I’m going to bully him’.
The incident on the London Underground’s jubilee line in the early hours of Friday morning appears to be a random attack.
British Transport Police say they are aware of the footage circulating on social media and have appealed for information.
In the horror video, the woman can be heard saying: “Because you’re gay I’m going to be like no he’s gay, oh my God, just let him go, no.
“Because you’re gay, even more, I’m going to violate you.”
She then says “I’m going to bully him. I don’t care, I’m going to bully him.”
The woman then appears to try and grab something from him while saying “let me steal his phone”.
But when it seems she is unsuccessful, she spits at the man, who cannot be seen in the footage.
As she turns to get off the packed train, another woman is heard saying to her “don’t chat to that man like that”.
The person who took the video, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Daily Mail: “Out of nowhere she started abusing verbally one of the passengers.
“The man tried to ignore her but she was not leaving him alone, she tried touching his face and he was very patient to her, telling her to stop it, without being aggressive until she tried to grab his phone.
“He kicked her and then she spat on his face, the man was still very calm, other passengers gave him tissue to clean up his face and he was grateful for that.”
A spokesperson for British Transport Police told Mirror Online: “British Transport Police are aware of a video on social media showing an incident of homophobic abuse on a Jubilee line train.
“We take all reports very seriously and would ask anyone who witnessed what happened, or who has any information, to contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 680 of 03/05/19.”
