Video: Wandsworth man arrested after ‘racist individuals make monkey noises’ on train

Postby Community Editor » Tue Mar 19, 2019 11:12 am

A Wandsworth man has been arrested following an alleged racist attack on a train.

On March 9, a video went viral on Twitter which showed one man making monkey noises and jumping around on a Northern Line train between Stockwell and London Bridge.

The person who posted the video accompanied it by saying that "six white racist individuals started to make monkey noises on the train to my friend because he is black, one of the individuals then starts to swing around and coming up close.

"They need to be identified and punished, being drunk is NOT an excuse."

Now officers investigating the incident have arrested a 24-year-old man from Wandsworth on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence. He has since been bailed pending further enquiries and police investigation.

Officers continue to ask for witnesses to contact BTP by texting 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 711 of 09/03/2019.
