Teen girls charged with spitting on passengers at Sydney train stations

TWO teenage girls who, for the past two weeks, have been spitting on and assaulting members of the public in and around Sydney train stations have been arrested and charged.

Police say the two girls, aged 14 and 15, committed numerous offences on train passengers and transport officers between Tuesday July 21 and Friday August 7.

Following investigations, Police Transport Command officers yesterday identified and arrested the pair at Strathfield Railway Station.


They were taken to Auburn Police Station where they were each charged with a long list of offences, including multiple counts of common assault, behaving in an offensive manner, using offensive language, and travelling without a valid ticket.

They were both refused bail to appear before a Children’s Court yesterday.
