Detectives investigating a sexual assault of a woman on a bus in Westminster have released an image of man they would like to identify.

The incident happened on a route 36 bus from Victoria Train Station, on Thursday 28 April at about 12pm.

A man boarded the bus by the rear exit on the bottom floor, sat next to the victim, who was by the window, and sexually touched her.

When the victim got up and moved, the man sexually touched her again as she changed seats.

The victim moved away from the suspect, however he stared at her and attempted to talk to her.

The man got off the bus in Park Lane and continued to stare at her through the window. The victim got off the bus a few minutes later.

Detective Superintendent Michael Dougall said: “The MPS and our partners at TFL are heavily committed to tackling sexual abuse on the bus network. No one should have to suffer this ordeal whilst going about their day. I would urge anyone with any information about this offence to contact the police immediately.’

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC.
