Appearing at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on August 5, Hoque was handed a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 24 months. 

PC Dear said: “I hope this sentence acts as a clear warning to Hoque, further such behaviour will result in him spending time behind bars.”

Transport for London’s Director of Compliance and Policing, Siwan Hayward, said: “Hoque’s behaviour was a disgusting and unacceptable way to behave towards our staff and customers. 

“Everyone has the right to go about their day without fear or intimidation and we do not tolerate any form of physical or verbal assault.”
