UPDATE: A Footscray man has been charged with a string of offences after allegedly attacking four passengers and going on a vile rant on a Melbourne tram last night.

The disturbing incident began around 6pm in Docklands.

The offender was captured harassing a passenger before attempting to kick him and hit him with a bag.

3AW Sports Editor Alexandra Factor was on the tram and caught the ordeal on camera.

‘It was frightening,’ she told Neil Mitchell.

But Ms Factor revealed the man’s poor behaviour was far from finished once she stopped recording.
