A group of Americans on a train ride in New Jersey on Friday reported seeing a man in a black hat walk into the train and “look through” the window.
It was the second time in two days that a man on a Amtrak train had been seen on the train by people on the opposite side of the tracks.
The man, described as a white man, said he was in the woods.
The group had reported seeing people on opposite sides of the train in the past and the train operator told the group to stop.
But on Friday, the train driver told them that people in the other train were on the right side of tracks and not on the left, according to the group.
After the man said the two trains had moved, the group started to go to the right track.
Then, they saw a white male with a hat, the passenger said.
“The next thing I knew, he’s walking through the window and is talking to the passenger,” said the passenger, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to discuss the incident.
The passenger said she and her friend didn’t see the man until he got on the tracks, and that the man then pointed at the passenger and said, “Hey, you got a ticket?”
When the passenger asked the man what he was talking about, the man replied, “You got a receipt for that train.”
The man then said, “‘I got the ticket, get off,'” the passenger told the police, according the passenger.
The train stopped at a stop sign, and the passenger was asked to leave.
The next person who boarded the train was asked by the man to leave, the passengers said.
The incident happened at about 5:30 p.m.
ET, according with Amtrak.
Amtrak said it was unable to confirm if the train that stopped was a train that had been flagged for being on the wrong side of a track.
The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the incident, Amtrak said.
