A ‘drunk’ female passenger aged 24 was arrested over sexual assaults on a train while she was reportedly on the way home from a Christmas party.
Shocking footage showed a woman threatening shocked commuters and tells a male passenger to ‘come on take me.’
The bizarre incident, which happened on a c2c train between London and Essex yesterday evening, was recorded by fellow commuters who urged the woman to stop harassing other passengers.
A spokesman for British Transport Police said a female passenger is in custody after being arrested at Tilbury.
He said: ‘A 24-year-old woman is in custody this afternoon, after being arrested in connection to an incident on board a C2C train yesterday evening.
The woman, who is from Bowers Gifford, was arrested on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault and four counts of common assault. She remains in custody as enquiries continue.’
John Mason, from Stanford-le-Hope, Essex, who filmed the encounter, said: ‘I was quietly minding my own business yet this girl was upsetting everyone and at the end of the day you have to take a stand.’

The video shows the woman confronting a man sat on the train while appearing to straddle him, before turning and pointing to another woman and shouting: ‘Oh my god you thought you were going to f****** say something and that it mattered.’
She then puts her arm around the man who stands up to try to avoid her, while she continues to continue her rant.
Passengers are seen trying to reason with the woman, saying: ‘Calm down’ but she then turns her attention to Mr Mason, filming the incident.
She sticks her face in the camera and says: ‘Yeah film me what, yeah go on. What. What. What the f*** are you going to do.’
A man then tries to pull her back, but she once again tries to confront the first man she initially appeared to straddle.
However, another man steps in to try and stop the woman. The man argues with the woman and says: ‘Listen girl I don’t give a f*** you’ve had too much to drink.’
The woman then approaches another man and say: ‘come on then take me!’ before she approaches Mr Mason once more, appearing to ask for a fight.

Mr Mason, 49, commented on his video saying: ‘Smacked me in the face twice. Grabbed [a] security guard by the nuts. Sorry but I’ve been here before and nothing happened so I walked away.’
Jo Hurt responded online: ‘God if I was on that train and she was doing that to my hubby she would of been out the window while the train was still moving.’
Ayla Hasan added: ‘I saw her when I got to the station, screaming and shouting on the platform and making a scene. What an embarrassment.’
Colin Bright wrote: ‘Silly season has well and truly started! I agree with the comments about if this was a man they’d be crucified on here… she’s lucky no one gave her a right hander. Oh well she will be feeling it tomorrow.’
