Man arrested after sticking fingers in mouth and wiping them on train handrail

A man has been arrested after he was filmed sticking his fingers in his mouth and smearing it on a handrail on a Belgian subway train.

The passenger, who was filmed by a commuter in Brussels, could be seen taking his facemask down before he put two fingers in his mouth and then rubbed them on a metal handrail.

Shortly afterward, the clip was shared on Twitter with the commuter warning passengers not to copy the unidentified man’s actions.

The commuter said: “Watch what this son of a b**** does to the handrails on public transport. Do not touch the handrails.”
