RICHMOND, Australia — A train in Richmond was not the kind of thing that a local railway would want to stop at.
The driver of the train was seen with a knife in his hand, and there was no indication of a fight.
The only way for the driver to escape would be for someone to jump out of the car.
But that wasn’t the only train that was stopped at the same time in Victoria, according to the state’s railway police.
The investigation into the incident is now focusing on whether the train had been targeted by an armed gunman, according the Victorian Transport Safety Bureau.
Victoria Police spokesman Greg Baker told ABC News that the train’s driver was not under investigation.
The agency was trying to determine whether the driver was carrying a weapon.
He said that, “it’s a very active investigation right now and we’re continuing to investigate.”
The driver was last seen with his hands up.
The VTSB is working to determine if the train driver was a gunman.
The suspect vehicle was found parked at a busy intersection in Richmond on Monday, but the VTSSB said it was not immediately clear whether the person was injured.
Police in the nearby city of Ballarat were asked to look at surveillance footage to determine what happened.
Police said they were still trying to track down the driver.
In the aftermath of the incident, the train operator told ABC Radio Victoria that he had called police “because he was concerned for his safety and had seen something suspicious” around him.
“I asked if he needed help and he said he didn’t need help, he was alone,” the operator said.
“I’ve been in this industry for 25 years and never heard of anything like this happening before.
He had no idea what was going on.”
The Victoria Rail Link is a rail line that connects Victoria with Tasmania, New South Wales and the Northern Territory.
It runs from Richmond to Ballarat.
