The victim was asked if he had any money before a man tried to snatch his bag while hurling racist abuse at him on the station concourse.

During the attack a punch was thrown at the victim before the suspect fled empty handed.

The attack took place on March 5 at 10.54pm but the details have only been released today as part of an appeal to trace the man pictured.

PC Stuart Morishita-Dubois, investigating officer, said: “This was a brazen and aggressive attempted mugging and whilst nothing was stolen, it’s important we trace the person responsible.

“Thankfully the victim received no injuries and had the courage to fend off the thief, nevertheless I’d still encourage anyone who recognises the man pictured to get in touch with us.”

Anyone with any information should call British transport police on 0800 40 50 or text 61016 quoting reference 240 of 29/04/2016.

Alternatively you can all Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
