The 27-year-old victim was playing his game console on a Metropolitan Line train travelling between Barbican and Finchley Road when he was targeted.

One of the youths tried to grab his console but he placed it in his bag, resulting in another one telling him he had a knife.

A third youth kicked the train window, narrowly missing the victim’s head.

When the victim left at Finchley Road station he was punched in the face.

Det Con Kunle Iroko said: “This was an intimidating and unprovoked assault.

“We don’t tolerate violence anywhere on the London Underground network and I’d urge anyone who recognises the group pictured, or who witnessed the incident, to contact us.”

Anyone with information about the attack, on November 22 at about 9.40pm, should call the British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, text 61016, quoting background LUA/B8 of 07/01/14 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
