A WOMAN who tried to chat to other passengers on a train ended up attacking a man and a woman who didn't want to talk.

Lisa McDougall was on the 5.30pm train between Partick and Drumchapel when she kicked off, leaving her female victim needing hospital treatment.

Depute fiscal Sat Singh told the court McDougall was trying to strike up a conversation with another passenger on March 28, 2019, when words were exchanged.

He said: "Thereafter the accused lunged towards the witness McFarlane and grabbed his throat with her hand.

"He pushed the accused off him, causing her to fall backwards.

"Whilst on the ground, witness McFarlane struck the accused to the leg."

Other passengers then became involved to try to separate the pair.

But McDougall got up and lunged again, this time towards another witness and seized her by the head causing injuries to her right eye.

Mr McFarlane managed to push her off but McDougall broke free despite other people restraining her and lunged again at the female victim, grabbing her hair.

Two off duty police officers who were in the carriage then stepped in to arrest her and she was taken to Clydebank police station.

The 32-year-old told officers: "I'll stand up for myself."

The female victim was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where she received treatment for a black eye.

McDougall's defence brief said: "Her prior course of conduct in what is a very public place has left her thoroughly ashamed of herself.

"It was how she was leading her life at the time but she has not drunk alcohol for some time, which was her main problem."

Sheriff Jonathan Guy said: "This was clearly very disgraceful behaviour on your part and you acknowledge that.

"I am concerned by the time it has taken this matter to appear at today's hearing.

"You have taken pretty significant steps in addressing why you are here."

McDougall was placed on a community payback order and told to complete 90 hours of unpaid work within 12 months.
