A LENZIE woman plunge from a train onto a station platform after being hit on the face and chest.

Trouble flared on the Saturday night Glasgow to Alloa train as it approached Bishopbriggs Station.

A disturbance had broken out between a group of five people and two youths.

Transport police say that the injured 60-year-old woman, who comes from Lenzie, was not part of either group.

Following the assault, the two youths got off the train at Bishopbriggs and one threw a bottle which hit one of the men in the group.

The injured woman, who was hit on the face and chest by one of the youths, was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

She was later released after being treated for bruising.

The ordeal happened at around 9.30pm on Saturday, October 1.

DC Pamela Connelly, of the British Transport Police, said: “I’m aware that the service was busy at the time.

“Anyone who was on the train, or at Bishopbriggs Station around the time of the incident, is urged to contact me as a matter of urgency with any information which could assist our enquiries.”

The group of five, which consisted of three men and two women, are all described as being in their 30s and well dressed.

The youths were both male and one of them was wearing a grey hoody.
