When she asked for an apology, the pair began shouting before they started kicking and punching her.
Sergeant Emma Weir, the investigating officer, said: “As she asked for an apology, the man began to argue with the victim.
“He then became aggressive, shouting at her. A woman travelling with the man also began to shout, before the pair set upon her, kicking and punching her.

Officers have spoken to witnesses onboard the train and circulated images on police intelligence systems but to no avail.
