A 25-YEAR-OLD man has handed himself into police after footage emerged of him shouting abuse at an elderly passenger.

The incident is believed to have happened on Saturday.

The man shouting the abuse appeared to be with a young child.

He started his tirade by making a number of crude remarks about the pensioner’s family, saying that he intends to have sex with the man’s daughters and telling him to go back to Turkey.

He goes on to say that he is going to “shove a pig’s cock’ into the man’s mouth.

He then says, “nobody knows what you’re saying. Go back to Turkey and talk that shit. Oh no you can’t, because shit gets blown up in Turkey”.

The Guardian is reporting that the incident happened on a bus in Tottenham, north London.

At the end of the video the man shouting the abuse takes the pensioner’s walker and throws it off of the bus and into the street.

Following an appeal for witnesses, this evening the Metropolitan Police have confirmed that the man had been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.
