A man who allegedly bit an elderly woman on a Melbourne train and pushed a boy onto tracks is also accused of assaulting two paramedics on Christmas Day.

Adam Reeves, of Tullamarine, is in jail over his alleged rampage at Hawthorn railway station on Thursday afternoon.

A 73-year-old woman was in hospital after she was allegedly assaulted and bitten by Reeves on the train.

A boy, 14, was treated for an arm injury after allegedly being pushed onto the tracks, and a 54-year-old man received minor injuries in an alleged assault.

Reeves, who was said to be acting erratically before the incident, was restrained by witnesses until police arrived.

He did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody after briefly facing the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Reeves faces charges of intentionally causing injury, reckless conduct endangering life and committing an offence while on bail.

Court documents show Reeves is also charged with assaulting two paramedics on Christmas Day last year, when he was allegedly drunk in a public place.

The court heard he suffers from schizophrenia and would require medication while in custody.

Reeves is due to appear again on October 28.
