Police would like to speak to this man following a violent attempted mugging where the victim was racially abused at Neasden tube station.
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.”
