Man detained for pushing compliance head in front of tube train
13/03/2018 , News Team

A mental health patient who pushed the former head of international compliance at Bank of New York Mellon in front of a London tube train has been locked up indefinitely.

Former Royal Mail worker Alan Alencar, from Edinburgh, pushed Alain Lesjongard onto the tracks one day after being released from hospital.

Mr Lesjongard, 55, only survived by “an extraordinary stroke of luck” as he curled up between the live rails at Bayswater station, a hearing was told.

He managed to crawl back onto the platform with his suit in shreds, suffering from a broken leg, a fractured spine and a deep head cut, according to reports.

Mr Alencar, 29, has been suffering from mental health problems since 2012 and was diagnosed with suspected schizophrenia in 2015.

He was arrested at the ticket hall after he was spotted by a member of staff.  After being told the victim might have died, he replied, “First time for everything but I won’t do that again.”

Mr Alencar admitted attempted murder at an earlier hearing.
