The victim, a man aged in his 40s, was reported to have sustained his injuries after being pushed off the stationary train at Herne Hill following an argument.

He was helped back onto the train by fellow passengers, who asked the suspect to leave, said police.

The suspect was last seen at the platform at Herne Hill.
