A man was left with a broken cheek and rib after an assault on him and a woman at Upminster Station. 

The woman and man were travelling on the District line when three men boarded the train at Upminster Bridge Station just before 7.30pm on Monday, March 29.

One of those men was reportedly heard threatening to “wet up” the male victim on the phone, telling the person on the other end to come to Upminster.

They all got off the Tube at Upminster Station before the three men started attacking the victims.

Five more men arrived at Upminster Station and joined in the assault, repeatedly punching and kicking the male victim as he lay on the floor.

All eight men then walked back down to the platform and left the station on a westbound District Line Tube service.

One man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
