A WOMAN was beaten by a gang of four women on a train from Glasgow Central.

Transport cops say the victim had injuries to her face and head after she was pulled to the ground, kicked, and punched repeatedly while on-board the 8.30 pm service from Glasgow Central to Ayr on Thursday.

The gang left at Kilwinning railway station while several passengers came to the aid of the victim. 

That same night at 11.20 pm another woman was taken to the hospital for injuries after she too was attacked at Ayr railway station by a gang of four women. 

British Transport Police Detective Constable Martin Graham said: “We are urgently appealing for witnesses following these two awful incidents. Thankfully, these incidents are rare, and this type of behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated on the railway.

“We currently are pursuing a positive line of enquiry for both these assaults, however, we urge anyone who witnessed either incident or has any information to come forward.”
