Victims were hospitalized after two serious assaults aboard trains running between Kent and London.

The first assault took place on Saturday, September 11 on a train running from Dartford to Charing Cross at. 17.45.

Both the victim and a separate group boarded the service at Slade Green, and individuals in the group began shouting at each other.

When the victim asked them if they could calm down a bit, she was threatened by a member of the group who also influenced her.

Although the victim withdrew to another carriage on the train, she was followed by the group, which launched a violent attack on her.

She was kicked in the head and hit with glass bottles before she managed to get off the train at Erith station.

Other passengers got off and came to her aid before she was treated at a hospital.

Her attackers stayed on the train with London.

In another incident, a couple were on a train running back to Dartford just before noon.

A group of people they did not know began to verbally abuse them, and shortly after, a girl from the group began attacking the female victim with a bottle of wine before the rest of the group attacked them both.

Other passengers trying to pull them to safety were also assaulted by the group.
