At around 16.15pm on Sunday 2 May the victim challenged three male passengers about not wearing a face covering. One of the men tried to remove the victim’s mask and an altercation took place which involved the victim being punched.
The other men and members of the public intervened, before a fourth man removed his belt and began to strike those involved.
The victim had to attend hospital, suffering a fractured cheekbone and fractured ribs.
Officers believe the men in the images may have information which could help their investigation.
