A 46-year-old woman has been arrested by Transit Police for allegedly committing two violent attacks on SkyTrain.

In one incident, Surrey resident Tamara Dawne Robertson appeared to be drunk and started mocking deaf and hard of hearing students on board who were communicating via sign language.

She moved in close and seemed to be scaring the students. When another woman asked her to back off, she got slugged in the face.

In the second incident, she is accused of blocking the path of a 71-year-old man who tried to get off at Edmonds Station.

When he asked her to move out of the doorway, she punched him in the face.
