Disabled Woman Assaulted At Victoria Station

July 22, 2014

Readers, please share widely in case anyone knows anything about this terrible incident.

A 46-year-old disabled woman was assaulted at Victoria station on Monday, 9 June at around 12.30pm.

PC Michael Willoughby said: “The woman was leaving the station via the northern concourse, when her motorised wheelchair accidentally clipped the foot of a smartly-dressed blonde woman.

“The victim apologised, but the woman became verbally abusive, swearing at the victim who carried on towards the Buckingham Palace Road exit.

“As she was preparing to leave the station, a man grabbed her chair, tilted it backwards and began swearing at her.

PC Willoughby added: “The victim was scared that she was going to be tipped over, and shouted at the man to leave her alone.

“He did eventually let go, but continued to shout abuse at the woman as she left.

“Fortunately she was not injured, but she was left feeling intimidated and was initially too scared to report what had happened.

“We will not accept any form of abuse or violence on the rail network and are working hard to identify both the man and the woman involved in this incident.”
