SPAT IN A WOMAN’S FACE AT TRAIN STATION DURING LUNCH! Police hunt for long-haired misogynist in a pink polo shirt

Detectives are on the trail of a misogynist in a pink polo shirt wanted over a shocking spitting attack on a young woman in broad daylight at an inner-city Sydney train station earlier this year.

A long-haired misogynist some members of the public have likened to “Jacob from Twilight” is wanted by police over a despicable attack on a woman at Redfern Station where he spat in her face as she waited for a train.

The disdainful example of male hatred and misogyny occurred in the first week of the new year on Monday, January 4.

Detectives say the 24-year-old woman was waiting for a train when she was approached by a man who then spat in her face.

The woman boarded the train and later reported the incident to officers from Sutherland Police Station.

Officers attached to the Police Transport and Public Safety Command’s North Central Team subsequently commenced an investigation into the incident.

For some reason though, it has taken NSW Police almost eight months to release the CCTV footage from the train station which could help identify the suspect.

Better later than never, we suppose.

The man depicted in the CCTV is described as being aged in his mid to late 20’s, with an olive complexion, thin build and curly, brown, shoulder length hair.

He was wearing a pink polo shirt, black shorts and a disposable mask at the time of the alleged assault.

  1. Despicable, and hard to understand why it’s taken so long to release the footage, when if released straight away, it could have led to early identification of the suspect.
