A Surrey woman has been arrested after a series of assaults on the SkyTrain.
At about 2:45 p.m. last Wednesday (Feb. 17), a woman was seen drinking on the SkyTrain at Royal Oak Station in New Westminster. The 46-year-old woman appeared to be intoxicated, according to witnesses.
Transit Police say she began mocking a group of young students who were deaf.
Another woman intervened and was allegedly punched in the face by the intoxicated woman.
Later, a 71-year-old man tried to get off the train, but had his path blocked. When he asked the intoxicated woman to move out of the doorway, police say he too was punched in the face.
The victims and suspect got off the train at Edmonds station and Transit Police were alerted.
The woman who was punched suffered a concussion and a black eye, and the man suffered bruising to his nose.
The suspect was later found walking near Gateway Station in Surrey and was arrested and charged with two counts of assault.
Tamara Dawne Robertson is scheduled to appear in Vancouver Provincial Court on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
