Man Headbutts Violent Passenger On Busy Commuter Train
A city worker has been filmed headbutting a violent man who was trying to fight other passengers on board a busy commuter train.
The rest of the carriage cheered as the smartly dressed worker successfully put an end to the man's tirade, with reports across social media claiming he was being abusive and aggressive to other people.
Footage taken on the train, believed to have been travelling from London to Southend-on-Sea yesterday, shows the suited man arguing with the shorter man and restraining his wrists to try to stop him from kicking off.
When the aggressive man starts to shout: "Look at me I'm stupid! Look at me I'm stupid!"
He continues yelling and holding the taller man, who then snaps and strikes him with a vicious headbutt, knocking him to the floor.
The loud sound of the headbutt triggers gasps among onlookers. It's not clear who filmed the video, but it's been circulating on social media since last night.
As reported by The Sun, one witness said the dispute began when the smaller man tried to sit on the back of two chairs.
They said: "He was literally sitting on people's head. A commuter who was on the seat took offence, rightly so.
"They had words, it turned into a fight. The fight got broken up and the guy was taken to the doors to calm down. He was mental - shouting and swearing at the guy who was holding him. The crazy guy tried to push his way out of being held.
"The guy holding him had enough and gave him a lovely head butt. It sounded painful. But the guy was a nutter."
After the incident, the 29-year-old was arrested by police at Upminster station on suspicion of theft and carrying a knife.
Another passenger wrote: "He was dragged off the train by two guys and held down on the platform.
"Then, thankfully, the train continued its journey. That was not fun to witness."
A statement from officials read: "British Transport Police received a report at 3.35pm on 03/10 of a man fighting and making violent threats to passengers on board a train.
"He was restrained onboard the service and arrested when it arrived at Upminster station. Following a search, the man, aged 29, was further arrested on suspicion of carrying a knife and theft by finding. He remains in custody."
