Julia Macfarlane, 29, British-Indonesian journalist based in London for the US television network ABC, posted photos of her alleged attacker on Twitter.
The incident took place when she got off at the East Croydon train station in south London around 10.30 today.

The British Transport Police is investigating, but no arrests have been made.
Julia Macfarlane, a 29-year-old British-Indonesian journalist living in London of the US television network ABC, posted photos of her alleged attacker on Twitter after she accused him of beating and kicking her.
Julia tweeted a description of what happened after calling the police after the incident at the East Croydon train station at 10.30 a.m.
She told MailOnline: "The train was entering the East Croydon station, he was pushing me, so I turned around and said" mate, I'm also going to get off at the next stop ".
Miss McFarlane has asked for help from the police and the public to locate the man who calls him "danger to other people"
"He said how he was supposed to know that, and he started to become aggressive." I turned to my music and turned my back on him, then kicked me in the back, like a soccer ball. I repeatedly tried to hit myself because I did not get off the train fast enough.
"The whole time I was trying to take pictures of him he was grabbing me and trying to grab my phone and swing his fists.
"I threw him out of the station and tried to hold on to him to take pictures and take off his stupid hat to get a better chance.
"He tried to take my phone, but I held it and sat on the floor to protect him from it, then he decided to run away and that's where I lost it."
She added: "He is a danger to other people, so hopefully the police will catch him. Imagine if I had been an old lady & # 39;
The man, wearing a black hat, a blue hoodie by Ralph Lauren, shorts and running shoes from Adidas, held up his hand while Miss Macfarlane took pictures of him.
He fled when she and a passer-by pursued him from the station.
She tweeted the images to her 73,000 followers and said: & # 39; I would like to point out that the train was full, nobody said or did anything, everyone saw it.
"The only person who helped me, and actually ran after him and caught him for a while before he escaped again, was a young black man named Tyesdale." Hero, thank you friend.
Julia suffered a back injury, but did not require treatment.
