DCI Sam Blackburn, of the British Transport Police, said: “This was a violent and rare attack, which took place on a late night train out of London.Yes. Those hardly ever happen, eh? Especially in Barking.
“Officers were on the scene within minutes and we are working hard to identify and trace the men responsible for this assault.
“We understand that this was a frightening incident for passengers on the train and at the station, and would encourage anyone who witnessed the attack or the moments leading up to it to come forward and tell us what they saw.”And the oh so modern addition to this story:
The incident is not being treated as terror-related.Why would a fight on a train ever be considered such..?
