A Tube passenger was racially abused by a man who allegedly tried to steal his bag.
The victim was walking through Neasden London Underground station to board a Jubilee line train when he was approached by a man who asked if he had any money.
After replying that he did not, the man tried to grab the victim’s bag while shouting “a volley of hostile and racial abuse” at him, British Transport Police said.
The man then allegedly threw a punch towards the victim’s head before fleeing without the bag.
PC Stuart Morishita-Dubois, from British Transport Police, 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 information should call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016 quoting reference 240 of 29/04/2016.
Information can also passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
