Four men are being hunted by police after a journalist was attacked and had urine thrown at him during violent protests last month in central Melbourne.

While he was reporting from protests on Swanston Street about 11.15am on September 21, a man in high-visibility gear grabbed Seven News journalist Paul Dowsley by the neck in a headlock.

A second man, with a bald head and wearing a brown jacket, spat on Mr Dowsley before a third man in a bicycle helmet threw urine at the journalist.
