NS conductor Bert Roberti was assaulted so severely in the train from Helmond to Eindhoven on Sunday night, that he lost consciousness. "Someone called me a dirty faggot and punched me on the back of the head." Roberti suffered a concussion.

According to the Roberti, there was nothing that could have initiated the assault. "It came completely out of nowhere." The assault was captured on a security camera. "Those images are being studied. Hopefully we'll soon know who did it."

The conductor was shocked by the cruelty, but decided not to let it scare him. "I do my work with a lot of fun and there is nobody on this planet that can ruin that for me." No one has been arrested for the assault yet.
