The attack happened at approximately 12.10pm on Saturday, September 1 and was captured on CCTV. Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
PC Leigh Spencer said: “We were called to the scene by the ambulance service after the man was found with nasty injuries to his face and head.
“Through CCTV enquiries in the area we have managed to capture the assault and images of the people responsible. I would urge anyone with information about those men, and the men themselves, to come forward.
“We would also like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident. Did you witness the assault? Did you see the events that lead up to it? If so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
Andrew Thomas, Leicester City Council's Head of Traffic Management, said: “Attacks like this against staff who are simply carrying out their work is totally unacceptable, and we will be working with the police to identify the people responsible.
"We'd urge anyone with information about this incident to report it to the police."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Spencer on 101.
