Despite Mr Daubney’s comments, British Transport Police clarified to Express.co.uk the stop had not been related to face covering.
A spokesperson said: “Officers were called to Vauxhall station shortly after 11am today (10 June) following reports of a man racially abusing and assaulting a member of Transport for London staff after being asked to fold his scooter on the escalator.
“Officers quickly attended and a man was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated assault. He has been taken to police custody for questioning.”
