‘Next time I see you I’ll break your legs’: Angry trainspotter threatens disabled teenager and tells him to move in ugly rant on station platform

  • Kristian Cox, 19, is approached by abusive trainspotter who then threatens him 
  • The trainspotter demands that Kristian, who is autistic and has ataxia, moves 
  • Kristian’s mother Tina shared the clip on social media and has reported the man 

This is the shocking moment a raging trainspotter approaches a disabled teenager and abuses him before threatening to ‘break his legs’.

The footage shows the unnamed man walking up to Kristian Cox, 19, at Walsall Train Station in the West Midlands on December 4. 

Noticing that he is being filmed, the man demands that Kristian turns the camera off before abusing him and telling him to move as he is ‘blocking their way’. 

Kristian, who isn’t visibly disabled but is autistic and suffers from ataxia, refuses to move, and the man threatens to break his legs. 

Kristian’s mother Tina took to social media to highlight the man’s actions and also reveal the problems faced by other trainspotters.

She said: ‘Yesterday, Kristian got verbally abused and threats were made, by this ”Gentleman”.

‘He has cerebellar ataxia and autism. Ataxia is a condition where you aren’t aware of your spatial awareness. However, it does not give anyone the permission to abuse or laugh at the person that has annoyed you.

The clip shows the man approaching Kristian Cox, 19, at Walsall Train Station, while pointing at him angrily

‘It’s disgusting the society we live in these days. People are so diverse and different, obviously for different reasons that everyone should think before opening their mouths, about how it could make them feel.

 ‘I want to highlight the nastiness, abuse and backstabbing that’s goes on between train enthusiasts as well as in general.

‘For those of us not really so enthusiastic, it can be boring, but for those that are enthusiastic then it can be very worrying and for Kristian that’s an understatement.

In the clip, the man walks up to Kristian and demands that he stops filming him. 

He says: ‘Take that off me, now. Take that off me, now. Take that off me, now.’

Kristian replies: ‘You’re assaulting a trainspotter, here.’ 

To which the man replies and says he ‘don’t f****** care’. 

He launches a tirade of abuse at the teenager and tries to get him to stop filming their confrontation 

The heated exchange continues with Kristian asking why he is being asked to move and insisting that he arrived at the spot first.

The man replies: ‘Cause you’re blocking every f****** way. We were here all day before you.

‘Now f*** off. Next time I see you I’ll break your b****** legs.’

He then turns around and walks away, back to where his friends are waiting.

Tina has reported the shocking confrontation to Network Rail and British Transport Police.
