Disturbing new images have surfaced of a mother making a violent and racist rampage on a train in Melbourne for her horrified daughter.
The extended video of a Metro train near Oakleigh shows the girl begging her mother to stop calling two masked Asian commuters ‘disease-carrying dogs’.
Later in the video, the woman is approached and punches one of them before wrestling on the floor.
She can also be seen grabbing her crying child by the sleeve.

More and more Australians are choosing to wear masks to protect themselves from COVID-19, which has already infected 6,010, killed 50, and brought the Australian economy to a chilling halt.
“Then what’s with the coronavirus?” she says at the beginning of the clip.
“It’s my country, I’m an Aussie citizen.”
While the enraged woman gets up, her daughter can be heard saying ‘no, mama’ and ‘let’s go’.
A passenger named Amber, who was on board when the incident occurred on March 25, told Daily Mail Australia she was attempting to intervene to help the two innocent men, but the enraged woman called her a ‘German sl * t’ – despite that she was British.
“She sat across from the two boys and pointed at them and asked if they had an extra cigarette, and they said no,” Amber said.
“Frankly, they were so shy these guys. They were just normal and kept to themselves.
She got up and started pointing their faces, calling them all under the sun and making racist comments.
She leaned forward and rolled back one of their caps.

“He responded clearly, he got up and pushed her back into her chair, then backed up.”
The commuters intervened quickly and tried to protect the two young men by moving them to the other side of the train, but the woman continued her rant.
“She just wanted more and keep going,” Amber explained.
“She was weaving in and out and then came and screamed in their faces. He sat down, she literally slapped him in the face – hard.
“The group of us deducted her, as did other commuters, and separated them as best we could.”
The group was unable to stop the woman’s attack and feared that she would become more violent – because she had already witnessed her attack on the men.
“At this point, she had gone before them twice, we all told her to shut up and not to shut up,” she added.

After the woman got off the train, officers received statements from the victims, as well as numerous other passengers.
General Manager of Metro for passenger experience, Tilly Loughborough said the “terrible behavior” had no place in trains or anywhere else. “
“We sincerely thank the passengers who intervened and the Protective Services Officers who responded. Victoria Police are now investigating this incident, “she said.
Anyone who witnesses such behavior should immediately alert Metro personnel via the red emergency button on trains and platforms, or contact the police.
“We remind passengers to be kind to each other. Our employees work hard to provide an essential service to Melbourne during this difficult time. ‘
Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Victoria Police Department for comment.
