Asian Man Allegedly Assaulted by Racists TWICE at Glasgow Train Station

An unidentified Asian man was assaulted twice on two separate, consecutive occasions by racist thugs at a train station in Glasgow, Scotland.

According to the police report, the victim, whose name has been withheld, was thrown onto the tracks of Anniesland station in Glasgow at 6:15 p.m. on Sunday. Shortly after recovering from the first encounter, and trying to get back on the train platform, another suspect attacked the man and racially abused him.

The British Transport Police are now looking into the case to catch the suspects.

Remarkably the victim is relatively uninjured as a result of being pushed on the tracks and the following assault on the platform, however this could have easily been a lot more serious,” Detective Sergeant Dougie Gallacher said in a statement.

We believe the man was assaulted on two separate occasions, the first being when he was pushed onto the tracks and the second when he was back on the platform,” he added.

The authorities believe the Asian man was attacked by three assailants: two men and a woman.

The second white man is described as having medium build with shaved hair. He was wearing a black jumper, jeans and a pair of brown shoes.

Lastly, the woman is described as white, medium build with brown hair tied in a ponytail. She was seen wearing a light-colored jacket with a pink top, light-colored jeans, trainers and black bag.
