A pervert groped a woman as she walked through a busy Tube station then attacked her friends after they stepped in to protect her.

The sexual assault took place shortly before 12midnight on June 30 when the 31-year-old victim was walking through Highbury and Islington station with some friends.

A man touched her inappropriately and walked off towards the exit, but when her friends confronted him came back and started shouting and hitting them.

He punched two of them – men aged 28 and 32 – before making off.

The suspect is a black man, about 6 ft 3 ins wearing a dark top and dark trousers,
