Police are on the lookout for a woman, whose identity is yet to be revealed, after she threatened a mother and her one-year-old baby on the tube.

The incident took place on July 18, 2018, in England. The mother, whose name hasn't been shared with the press, boarded a westbound service at Bank station.

According to the Daily Mail, as she was entering, her baby accidentally kicked a woman, who immediately turned around and started intimidating the mother.

The female commuter verbally assaulted the family of two on the Central Line. At one point, she even told the mother that she had a knife in her purse.

The news outlet reported that the police revealed how 'frightened and 'shaken' the family was by the woman's aggressive language

The British Transport Police is urging anyone with information regarding the identity of the woman to please come forward so justice can be done.

In early June, a woman from New York City was also caught on camera being racist and aggressive towards an Asian woman because her daughter had to give up her seat.

The mother wasn't just verbally abusive; she also physically assaulted the Asian lady and eventually pushed her off the seat while telling her daughter to do the same in front of shocked onlookers.
