NSW Police said the woman was arrested on Friday and taken to Merrylands Police station with reports suggesting she was hurling abuse at yet another individual.

The arrest comes after Lindsay Li, 29, filmed a prolonged verbal attack which started while she was waiting in Willoughby for the citybound 273 bus at lunchtime on Wednesday.

Ms Li says the woman approached her and 'spat on her' before unleashing a prolonged verbal attack.

The woman, who referred to herself as a "Jew from Israel" then struck Ms Li with her shopping trolley and pushed in front of her when the bus pulled up.

“I’m Jewish from Israel, are you f---ing nothing,” the woman can be heard yelling in broken english.

The racist insults then continue on the bus.

A terrified Ms Li then pulls out her phone and begins filming the woman who lets fly with a series of racial slurs.

"Take your f----n' language and p*** off," the woman can be heard saying.

The woman also uses a derogatory term for Asians.

Ms Li woman said she was completely terrified.

The woman was "screaming in a racial tirade, just calling me every name under the sun," Ms Li told Fairfax.

"I'm feeling so threatened at this point ... I've gone to the bus driver you need to stop and call the police," she added.

"[The bus driver] has just completely ignored me and kept driving and I'm screaming at him going you need to stop the bus now.

"No one was standing up for me. This woman was so unstable I thought she could physically attack me at any time," Ms Li claimed.

Ms Li was in contact with a lawyer who told her that "she could be mentally ill and therefore a vulnerable group in society." Photo: Supplied

The abuse continues as the elderly woman tells Ms Li: “You pay for this, because I sue you, because I’m the poor one.

"I don’t have any money, you have plenty of money because you stealing all them."

Ms Li was in contact with a lawyer who told her that the abuser "could be mentally ill and therefore a vulnerable group in society."
