In case you needed yet another reason to avoid crime-ridden, drug-filled liberal urban cesspools, a homeless woman was arrested over the weekend for pushing a three-year-old toddler onto the train tracks in Portland, Oregon.

And while there’s never any reason to shove a little kid onto the train tracks (if this is news to you, please seek psychiatric help), the attack appears to be about as random as you can get.

Surveillance footage showed the little girl waiting with her mother on the platform of the Gateway Transit Center in Portland’s Woodland Park neighborhood last Wednesday when the stranger, later identified as a homeless woman named Brianna Workman, began eying the pair from her spot on a nearby bench. After a moment, and for exactly no discernible reason whatsoever, Workman simply charged the little girl and violently shoved her off the platform face-first onto the tracks below.

"The child landed face-first onto the metal rail and rocks," Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt said in a statement.

Thankfully, the little girl’s mom and a few bystanders were able to quickly pull the little girl off the tracks with relatively minimal injury, with Schmidt adding that “The child reported a severe headache and had a small red mark on their forehead after the incident."

Workman has since been charged with assault in the third degree, recklessly endangering another person, attempted assault in the first degree, and disorderly conduct in the second degree, and interfering with public transportation.
