Shocking series of attacks take place at Melbourne train station.

Emergency services have been called to attend to a shocking series of attacks at a Melbourne train station, after reports several women were pushed onto the train tracks by a man brandishing a knife.

The incident, which occurred at Glenhuntley station on Sunday morning, also allegedly involved an elderly woman receiving a punch to the head.

The man, described by Channel 7 as “calm,” reportedly stabbed a woman’s handbag at about 11am this morning. It is thought his knife then broke, and he started to push women onto the tracks.
