Photographs taken of the victim at the time shows the extensive bruising, cuts and grazes he suffered to his face.
Two men set upon Mr Lecoutier at around 4.30pm after he got off a bus in Pleasley Hill and began to walk home.
As he reached Clarence Street in Pleasley, he was attacked from behind by two men in dark clothing who assaulted him and stole his satchel-style rucksack. It contained his Apple iPhone and iPad and some coursework and books.
Police have also released footage which shows the victim walking past a car garage at the top of Chesterfield Road North in Mansfield shortly before the robbery. Two men can be seen following him down the street and police are keen to speak to them.
Detective Constable Anthony Hewitt, from Mansfield CID, said: "Christian was an innocent victim who was simply walking home after enjoying a quiet meal.
"He was set upon by two violent offenders who were obviously intent on stealing his belongings. This happened in daylight hours and I'm confident that someone out there saw what happened or knows who did this.
"I urge anyone with information to get in touch with police to ensure they don't hurt anyone else."
Anyone with information about the robbery should contact Notts Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
