A pregnant woman was punched in the abdomen on Finsbury Park station’s Victoria Line platform during rush hour last week.
Transport police are now appealing for information following the assault on Monday between 9.10am and 9.15am.
The woman was walking to board a southbound train and walked down the packed platform to a quieter area. As she walked past a group she was approached by a man from behind who hit her in the right of her abdomen. She challenged the man and told him she was pregnant but he then pulled her hair. Other commuters then intervened.
The man was white, in his 40s, tall and of a large build. He was balding and was wearing a hoodie and a black rucksack.
British Transport Police said enquiries were taking place, but still want to hear from anyone who can help identify the attacker.
