    Not even after dark but at a time when there would be no shortage of witnesses. Given that transport is already overstretched in the Borough was the station devoid of passengers on a weekday before 9am? The smartphone classes will be as much the death of us as the thugs they empower with their silent staring at the screen. I do hope that the scum are caught and the poor lady receives counselling or some assistance – when nobody comes to your aid it leaves a mark on your confidence.

    Totally agree with you Charles

    I hope these scum are caught sooner rather than later. I hope the lady victim is okay and receiving support after this horrible incident. There must have been a lot of witness at this time. They must come forward to stop these scum from carrying out further attacks on innocent victims just going about their business.

    This is another call for more staff to be put at all stations from first to last trains. I would like to see more staff on trains patrolling them too. Passenger safety must come before profit !!

    I hope these thugs are caught too and when taken to court they are dealt with properly and does not give them a light sentence or community service.

    My thoughts are with the female victim who i hope makes a full recovery and receives the support she needs to be able move on with her life.

    While the men who robbed her rot in jail. Sorry but if they need money they need to go to work to earn it like everyone else.

    Scroungy looking junkies, desperate for some Crack! These types are dangerous as F*^%, as they will do anything for a hit! It’s that unpredictability that makes them dangerous!
    I’m relieved that the poor woman was no more seriously injured!
    The observation about the ‘Smart phone class’ was spot-on! It’s those electronically-drugged automatons, who are both prey, and the environment in which the scum thrive open and in!

    I have to say PaulSuperUnkown, That people that go to work and earn a living for themselves have a right to nice things. As does any other decent law abiding human being who does not go out to carry out crimes or to steal from and hurt others.

    Those scroungy looking drugged up crackhead B’s are animals and not human beings and should leave other peoples belongings a lone. You a spot on though it is there unpredictability that makes them dangerous as hell. !

    As any one working in a front line job with the public will tell you including Police Officers, Paramedics, Hospital Staff Prison Officers etc etc.

    It is not only them that need to be caught it is also their dealers too !!

    We do need tougher sentencing from our Courts.
