I'm afraid TfL does not publish information about incidents of workplace violence at individual stations. Revealing which stations have had the most incidents could lead to further incidents at particular stations, and would likely prejudice the safety, wellbeing or health of staff.

Trends and areas of increased risk are identified through reporting and other intelligence by TfL and the British Transport Police, who collectively ensure resources are targeted where they are most required.

Please see my answer to MQ 2015 /0722 for an analysis of workplace violence causes and trends, and measures TfL is taking to tackle this serious issue.
