Rampaging beautician brandished homemade flamethrower in terrifying Tube attack

3 min read

A beautician terrified tube passengers by brandishing a homemade flamethrower and threatening to set fire to their hair during rush hour.

Paris Bregazzi, 33, was warned by a judge to control her temper after spraying two people in the face with deodorant.

Inner London Crown Court heard Bregazzi has been handed six prison sentences in the last 18 months for violent behaviour.

In December last year she was jailed for hitting a disabled woman on the head so hard that she fell onto concrete floor and her rib cage shifted.

She has now been jailed for 14 months for the flame thrower incident in October 2019.

Prosecutor Daniel Wright said Bregazzi boarded an overground train at Caledonian Road at around 6pm and began pacing and shouting at people to stop staring at her.

The court heard she had a can of deodorant and a lighter as a make shift flamethrower and said to a female passenger 'I'm going to set your hair on fire'.

Passengers described her producing two foot flames with the items.

She then barged a woman in the shoulder as she got off at Highbury and Islington station before boarding another train and turning her attention to a woman standing by the doors.

She shouted the woman was an 'Asian b*tch' before spraying her in the face with the aerosol can, the court heard.

Mr Wright said: "It landed in both eyes. She tried to open her eyes but they were stinging and she could not see. Another passenger moved towards her and pulled her away having seen her holding her face with both hands.

"Once on the platform at Canonbury she could see the defendant remained on the train and was still shouting at other passengers."

The woman is said to have had vision problems for two hours as a result of being sprayed in the eyes.

Bregazzi got off the train at Dalston Kingsland station and a passenger grabbed her as she went to produce more flames from the aerosol can.

This woman was then also sprayed in the face with the deodrant, the court heard, and called a 'stupid b*tch' by Bregazzi.

Andreas O'Shea, defending, said Bregazzi had been rejected by her Nigerian family because of her gender identity.

Bregazzi, who is a transgender woman, also suffers from unstable personality disorder, the court heard.

Mr O'Shea said: "She recognises the seriousness of this and how horrible the situation is of her being there with an aerosol can and trying to light it. In her current state with medication she does see her own behaviour as shocking and deeply regrets it.

"There are two sides to this lady – one is the side when she's off medication and one is the side when she's on it."

Judge Silas Reid said: "Your record is terrible. You have spent quite a lot of time over the last 18 months in prison. It's not the first time you have been to prison either.

"You readily accept at the moment you are clearly well medicated, placid and calm, taking life as anyone should and not seeking to spread your anger all over the place.

"There are frequent occasions when your anger gets the better of you, it doesnt just impact you but impacts people around you.

"Find a bit of calmness in your life. If you do, then people can go on the tube with you without fear of being attacked. If you dont, there will be more prison sentences for you."

Bregazzi, of Tottenham, north London, admitted affray, threatening behaviour with an offensive weapon and racially aggravated assault by beating.
