Commuter fined for slapping security guard at Slough Railway Station

A commuter has been fined £400 after slapping a security guard during the evening rush hour at Slough Railway Station.

Rajveer Sandhu, of St Paul’s Avenue, Slough, was found guilty of one count of assault by beating and not guilty of one count of racially or religiously aggravated common assault following a four-day trial at Reading Crown Court, which began on Friday, May 20.

The 25-year-old slapped Brandon Thompson when he asked her to show her train ticket on a bridge between two platforms at the station in Brunel Way on February 17, 2015.

Mr Thompson was working for security company G4S at the time, helping to assist Great Western Railway staff with their ‘ticket block’ where commuters are asked to show a valid ticket.

Sandhu was fined £400 and told to pay £1,000 costs.
