The Rail, Tram and Bus Industry Union says a transit guard who was attacked by a 15-year-old boy four months ago is still recovering from her injuries.
A Perth Children's Court magistrate has sentenced the teenager to five months detention for the assault.
The court was told the boy was asked to leave the Kelmscott train station after using offensive language.
He then king hit a transit guard when she and another guard tried to arrest his friend.
The court heard the guard suffered severe injuries to her jaw as well as ongoing emotional distress.
The Union's Phillip Woodcock says he is not sure how long it will take for the guard to recover from the incident.
"From my last understanding she was still recovering and obviously is being helped you know by health professionals around the place and counsellors in regards to that," he said.
"The Community needs to take a look at themselves in regards to these sort of instances. Certainly, I think the judiciary has done that in this instance. Five month detention does send a message out to the public there that we will not accept this. "
