Vile moment yobs knock teenage girl onto train tracks after spitting at friend

Sickening footage shows the moment a thug knocks a teenage girl down onto train tracks at a station while his pals spit at and intimate other young women.

In the clip, captured on CCTV at Howth Junction train station in Dublin, Ireland, the hooligans are standing on the platform while several girls try to board the train.

The near doors of the train won’t open so they are forced to walk past the jeering lads to try and get to the doors at the other end.

As they walk past, one of the girls is kicked by a yob on a bike and another is spat at by another in a red jacket.

Then, a girl in a black coat, aged just 17, is also spat at in the face by the teen in the red jacket and she instinctively flinches away.

A second boy hits her with the wheel of his bike and she tumbles off the platform, trapped on the tracks with the train above her.

Several of the thugs walk away callously, while the spitting man in red puts his hands on his head and moves to the edge of the platform to see what has happened.

Meanwhile, panicked railway staff and passengers run over to see if the girl is badly injured and pull her back onto the platform.

Thankfully, the train didn’t move and she was not badly hurt.

Her outraged dad told the Irish Sun: "She’s okay, she is okay now, she is still a bit upset about it. It is an ongoing investigation.

"At the moment she is fine."

A Garda spokesman said: "Gardai are investigating an incident of assault that occurred in Howth Junction Dart Station on 1st April, 2021, at approximately 9pm.

"A woman fell from the train platform during the incident and sustained injuries.

"An investigation is ongoing into this matter."

An Irish Rail spokesman said security was in the process of removing the thugs from the train when the girl tumbled onto the tracks.

Spokesperson Barry Kenny said: "As they [security guards] were ensuring access to a carriage for customers boarding, one member of the group removed caused a customer to be knocked between the train and platform.

"Security were liaising with the driver to ensure the train did not depart, and the customer was aided back to the platform and thankfully unhurt.

"Gardai were immediately alerted and provided with CCTV to aid in the identification of the culprits.

"We have had extensive operations established with gardai in recent weeks in this area, to assist us in both Covid measures and to address anti-social behaviour."
