A teenage thug who threatened to assault an elderly man on a packed train in Sydney, Australia, was forced to cower in his seat after his fellow passengers stepped in to defend his victim. According to The Daily Mail, the elderly man is said to have asked the teen to stop using foul language on the train, which is when the boy stood up and said, “What the f*** are you going to do? Arc up to me d***head and I’ll crack you.” He then towers over the man threateningly while continuing to shout profanity at him. That’s when another passenger steps in.
- Another passenger grabbed the kid by the neck. The commuter quickly barges through the train car and grabs the boy by the neck, saying, “What did you say? What did you say? Who are you gonna crack?” The boy then returns and cowers in his chair while other people tell him to leave the train.
- The teen refused to leave the train. Clearly not fully willing to admit defeat, the boy refuses when others tell him to get off the train. “Get off the train you donkey. You gonna hit an old man you piece of s**t? Why don’t you hit me?” one passenger can be heard saying. Another adds: “Get off. You’re a f***ing b***h.”
- The video started circulating online shortly after the incident. While it’s unclear who filmed the video, it began making the rounds online shortly after and caught the attention of New South Wales police, who launched an investigation to identify and find the teen in the video. They were clear to mention that they aren’t interested in any of the other passengers who pull him away from the elderly man. They only want to speak to the boy himself.
- The teen is a coward who should be held responsible for his actions. While violence isn’t condoned in any situation, it’s good that the other passengers stepped in and dealt with him with the type of aggression he was showing the older man. Hopefully the man wasn’t too shaken by the experience and the police are able to find the teen in question.
