Given in my life I have caught the Williamstown train about six times in my life, the odds of feeling under threat should be low, but I did feel under threat as a couple of the youf went through the train asking to see people's tickets, as if they were ticket inspectors. I wanted to dial triple 000 but I did not want to draw attention to myself. I stared out the window and they moved to another area of the train.
Given I have caught the train to Sunbury once in my life, the odds of threat must be very low and there was no threat to me, but the train was delayed by a rough trio of people loudly arguing and making threats to each other. Most unpleasant. Platform staff and the train conductor dealt with the matter.
This story at The Age is online tonight. There is a quite frightening video of someone under threat of being stabbed in the face. A fellow passenger filmed the incident. Who knows what the drama was about, but Metro Trains has no interest in finding out, according Channel 7 and The Age.
Does Metro care? No and it is a disgraceful. I quote the reporter in the video, Metro Trains is unaware of the incident and cannot take any action unless a complaint is made. Really???????
