Drunk woman spat wine into nurse’s face in ‘absolutely disgusting’ attack on train

A 26-year-old woman has been jailed for 32 weeks after spitting wine into a nurse’s eye and face.

Jane Kelly Brown was on a train at around 8pm on April 2 when she made a ‘derogatory remark’ about the nurse’s clothes.

The nurse then saw Brown drinking from a bottle of wine and overheard her speaking to a man about picking up some cocaine, the Metro reports.

The nurse went to seek out a private place to call the police, and she alerted them about the woman before getting off at Penmaenmawr, near Llandudno in north Wales.

Brown however stopped the nurse from walking away and started asking: “What’s your problem?”

The attack was witnessed by a train guard who brought the victim back to safety in the carriage before calling the police.

The perpetrator was identified from the train’s CCTV footage but originally denied the attack.

During the trial, she changed her plea to guilty and was sentenced to a 10-week term for the attack.

The sentence was then increased to a total of 32 weeks for breaching a suspended sentence and Brown was also ordered to pay £200 in compensation.

Investigating officer, Jon Liptrot, referred to the attack on a key worker during the pandemic as “absolutely disgusting”.

He said: “This type of behaviour will not be tolerated on the railway and we’re grateful to the sentence imposed by the courts.

“I’d like to thank the train guard for their quick thinking and for supporting the victim until the police arrived and to highlight the bravery of the victim and witness for standing up to such unacceptable behaviour.

“Our nurses have a hard-enough job, never mind having to be subjected to awful incidents like this. Thankfully, incidents like this are rare.”
