This is the moment a woman was brutally assaulted by another woman who accused her of throwing a sandwich at her on the way back from Notting Hill Carnival.
It is reported that, the incident happened on a train travelling from London to Birmingham on Monday night.
The victim and her male companion were approached by a woman asking the pair if they had chucked food at her.When they denied the act, she told them: 'Don't make me take off my wig.
The woman in denim skirt said, I will punch you into next week!'A video published to Facebook has gone viral showing the woman violently punching the victim as a hooded man dived in to help, wrestling the second victim to the ground.
One of the alleged victims - a woman wearing a pineapple shirt - initially argued back to the woman.
In the video, the attacker then takes her wig off and grabs hold of the woman and repeatedly punches her in the head.
The hooded male then jumped in - pulling the second victim into a headlock and wrestled him to the floor.
At one stage the female victim cowered in fear as her attacker continued to punch and stamp on her
Other passengers initially ignore the fight with some moving to other parts of the train before a man eventually steps in to break up the fight.

My view: The woman, who was beaten was allegedly accused of throwing sandwich at passengers, it's not nice Don't throw food at people it's very rude, they're not your rubbish dump. I just don't understand why the male passengers refused to intervene and help the other woman from getting whooped like that, they ignored the women and left their seats , until a gentleman decided to step in. Police should check the CCTV to identify, the person/persons that threw the sandwich and they should be asked to clean the train for a month.
