The victim and her daughter were walking and talking and they glanced around and this drunk man attacked them. He punched the mother. This precinct usually keeps tabs on him as a matter of course.
The victim identified the attacker but the man surnamed Wu said he did not mean to attack. After questioning the police charged him with assault and arrested him. At Taipei Station, there were not many people in the tunnel where the attack took place and the area is well-lit. Most people were unperturbed by the incident and felt it would not happen again.
Security is good, its just a minor incident.
Are you worried? Not much, there's nothing too bad.
There are quite a lot of vagrants at Taipei Train Station, Im not worried as they don't bother people.
Some feel that it was just a minor incident and feel Taipei's security is good. Police said they usually patrol once every three hours. The incident was reported by a member of the public and they asked for help from transport police to catch the man. After the incident, they will assess if there is a need to raise the frequency of police patrols.
