Perth transport bosses are trying to trace CCTV footage to back up claims by a commuter that she witnessed a young woman performing a sex act on a man on a peak-hour train.
A passenger identified only as Kerry told Fairfax Radio in Perth she was among dozens of shocked passengers who witnessed the incident on the Armadale line at about 5.30pm (WST) on Thursday.
She also said transit guards had not intervened.
"We all make jokes about the Armadale line, it is so bad, and once again it's just proven to me that it's just getting worse and worse," she said.
David Hynes, of the Perth Transport Authority, said officials were investigating the matter "very seriously", and would be attempting to access the CCTV vision to back up the claims.
"This is the sort of stuff people should not have to put up with, whether you're in the Hay Street Mall, or in Northbridge or on a train, so we'll be looking into it," Mr Hynes said.
"We have CCTV vision on all trains; we'll track down the carriage and download the vision, find out what we can and we'll be looking into it pretty seriously, including whether our transit guards could've behaved better."
Locating the vision could take some time, as images can only be downloaded directly from the train's hard drive, which can only be done when the train is out of service.
