Man In Women's Clothing Attacks Couple On Train

Monday January 6 2014




A MAN wearing women's clothing, makeup and a red wig punched a couple on a train after a row about giving up a seat for an elderly lady.

The man, who got off the train at Elsecar, attacked the couple after they questioned why he had not moved his bag to let the pensioner sit down.

The couple, in their 30s, were both punched in the face and the husband was also spat at during the incident at around 3.40pm on December 20.

PC Richard Ward said: "The man is white, six feet and in his 20s. Officers are speaking to witnesses and looking for CCTV from the train as well as the station and surrounding area."

Information should be sent to British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, quoting incident number NEA/B5 of December 20, 2013.

Good to see calls for moderation are now being deleted WAB. Have you considered deleting message like the above? The anti-discrimination legislation suggests calling someone who is transgender 'It' is as offensive as describing someone who is another race 'It'.
Get your act together.

So his kids are happy for him to pick them up following his choice of dress yet the "adults" are judging him based on his clothes ffs. The whole post is to highlight a crime of assault not the fact that the assailant was a man wearing womens clothing. If it had been a woman wearing mens clothing what would you sick biggots be focussing on? That's right, the fact that the person assaulted 2 people, not the fact they were wearing clothes from the opposite sex. WAB should shut this site down cos its repeatedly used by mindless judgmental idiots who have nothing better to do with their sad lives. I hope the person gets justice, because he assaulted 2 people not because he was wearing ladies clothing.

So as far as i can gather his children are happy with him collectung them from school. Yet other parents and their children arent??!! Mmm they do say bigotry breeds bigotry., although i can confidently say that the kids are prob just curious..whereas the adults are condescending and judgemental.
It makea no difference if blk white, dressed in fem skin, dressed in trackies......this person assaulted two other people. He should be condemned for this not for being a transgender/living doll or whatever.i find it abhorrent and unbelievable thatt in this day and age Nic calls him an 'IT' and bananas wants him to do more of a jail sentence for wearing womens clothes.
WAB yet again you pick the headlines to show to get you more comments. WAB has gone rapidly downhill and WAB should be ashamed that they are cherry picking 'news' to create drama..
*shakes head in disgust*

I wonder if the elderly lady backs up the couple's story? Doesn't seem too far of a stretch to suggest that the alleged assault could have been the consequence of the couple displaying the kind of obnoxious ignorance displayed in some of these comments. I also wonder if the couple claiming to be victims were standing whilst the pensioner needed a seat.

NOOOO She is a woman, it is her GENDER IDENTITY. Yes perhaps at birth she was assigned "male" status, but only a BIGOT would say that she is actually a man. She has ALWAYS FELT LIKE A WOMAN and now she wears dresses, so she is 100% woman! Don't be bigots!

Live and let live. However basic respect for elderly people should come natural to decent people.

It's the signs of the times and the generation of I'm all right Jack Society we live in today.
