Shocking footage shows the moment a man pushes a young woman into an oncoming train at a London Underground station.
The man is seen loitering behind the young Muslim woman before he rushes towards her, shoving her into the side of the moving Tube – the force of the speeding train throws the woman back onto the platform.
According to the Daily Mail police were called to Piccadilly Circus tube station on Tuesday afternoon, after the incident was reported.
Luckily the female victim only suffered minor injuries, and was treated for grazes to her face at hospital, according to the British Transport Police.
Yoshiyuki Shinohara, 81, of no fixed abode, was subsequently arrested. He’s now been charged with suspicion of attempted murder.
Shinohara will remain in custody until he appear before Blackfriars Crown Court on November 25th.
