Barrie police are investigating after someone reportedly spat on a GO Train engineer, according to Anne Marie Aikins at Metrolinx.

Sharing news about the incident on Twitter, Aikins said that Barrie Police are investigating the situation, which reportedly occurred on Tuesday, alongside GO Transit’s department of safety.

The train had reached the end of its line, Aikins said, and the accused had reportedly fallen asleep. When he was woken by crews, Aikins reports that he spit in the engineer’s face.

There were reportedly no other customers on board.

“Spitting at our transit staff will never be tolerated,” Aikins said.

“Stress levels are up, I realize but this is totally unacceptable and really gross.”
