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

One of the youths tried to grab his console but he placed it into 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 the train at Finchley Road station he was punched in the face.

DC 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 please contact us.”

Anyone with information about the attack which happened on November 22 at around 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.
