Caltrain Delayed After Woman Allegedly Assaults Conductor

BRISBANE (CBS SF) — A Caltrain commuter train was delayed for about 20 minutes in Brisbane Thursday morning after the conductor was allegedly assaulted, according to Caltrain officials.

Northbound train No. 135 stopped at the Bayshore station while crews waited for emergency service personnel, according to a statement issued on social media at 10:54 a.m.

Caltrain spokesman Dan Lieberman said that an argument became physical and a woman allegedly elbowed the conductor in the nose.

She was apprehended and booked into jail on suspicion of assault and battery. Her name was not immediately released.

The conductor was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

There was no word on what the argument was about.

  1. Why would a passenger be in the cab of a train?

    1. Nobody said the passenger was in the cab. Or didn’t you know the conductors walk up and down the train, making announcements, operating doors, checking tickets and assisting passengers as needed … while the engineer operates the train from the cab?
