One of the men from the group accused him of following them and another ushered him to come closer to them on an escalator.
The man then punched the victim in the face, causing him to fall backwards down the escalator before he and the rest of the group ran away and exited the station.
The victim followed them out of the station, before two other men in the group pushed him and hit his phone of out his hand. The fourth member of the group then racially abused the victim and they all left the scene.
The victim suffered a broken arm and injuries to his back.
Officers believe the man in the CCTV footage may have information which could help their investigation.
