81-year old man pushes woman wearing hijab into an oncoming train

CCTV captured a man pushing off a woman putting on hijab into an oncoming train on the London underground.

In the horrifying footage, a man is seen loitering on the platform of the station.

As the train approaches, he seems to rush towards her and push her into the side of the moving train.

She then collided with the side of the train before landing back on the platform.

Immediately the incident happened, police were called to the train station.

The female victim suffered minor injuries and was treated for grazes to her face at hospital, the British Transport Police revealed.

Yoshiyuki Shinohara, 81, who is homeless, was arrested and charged on suspicion of attempted murder.

He appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday.

He has been remanded in custody until November 25 when he will appear before Blackfriars Crown Court.
