SHOCKING footage has emerged of a man being physically and verbally assaulted by two feral teenage girls on a packed rush-hour train this week.
Victim Roger Stapleford said the violent confrontation began after he politely asked one of the girls to remove her feet from the chair opposite, so he could sit.
The girl swore at him in reply.
Tired after a long day at work and suffering from a sore knee, Mr Stapleford swiped her leg from the seat with his hand and sat down.
Witness Rhett Buckley, an off-duty security manager for V/Line, said what ensued was an explosion of abuse.
“It was like something I’ve never seen before,” he said.
Mr Stapleford, 56, a married father of three, told the Herald Sun last night: “The bigger girl got up and threw some of the contents of her energy drink at me. I was stunned, surprised. I just thought, ‘What is this world coming to?’,” he said.
The girl then threw a 500ml can of drink, striking Mr Stapleford on the head and inflicting a 5cm bloody gash to his forehead.
A video obtained by the Herald Sun captures the moments after.
The girl utters a string of expletives, adding: “I hope you enjoy your shower. I hope you enjoy your shower. Free shower.”
“I’m not sitting next to a … Don’t touch me. Next time you touch me I’ll kill you. Kill everything you f—ing love,” she is recorded saying.
A second girl then pours a Slurpee over Mr Stapleford.
“I hope you enjoy that,” the first girl says.
The disturbing footage was filmed on the 5.03 express from Flinders Street to Eltham on Monday evening.
“I was angry, shaking, but what could I do?” Mr Stapleford said.
“I’m 6ft 4in and 110kg but just had to suck up what these young girls were throwing at me, in case I was seen as the aggressor.”
A passenger pressed the emergency button to inform the driver.
The train driver asked the girls to leave, which they did, but they reboarded another carriage.
Several witnesses described the pair swearing and abusing passengers and playing loud music before leaving the train at Clifton Hill station.
A second video, of the girls on the platform outside the train, shows them shouting abuse at the train driver and spitting at the train window.
Witnesses have also described the pair punching and kicking several of the train carriages.
“It was so frustrating, because you just feel so helpless – you can’t do anything in case it’s perceived you are in the wrong,” Mr Stapleford said.
“The girls had worked themselves into a frenzy. They were feral – gone berserk.”
Officers apprehended two girls at Clifton Hill. It is alleged that one physically attacked an officer.
Mr Buckley said: “The level of abuse and threats made were not acceptable.
“It was an explosion of abuse, then they physically and verbally abused the driver and then the police who caught up with them.”
Victoria Police and Metro Trains confirmed the incident last night.
