Detectives investigating a sexual assault on a bus in Beckenham have released an image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the attack.

The incident happened on Tuesday, December12, 2017, at approximately 7.15am, on a Route 54 bus heading towards Lewisham.

A 25-year-old woman sat on the upper deck of the virtually empty bus. A stop later, a young man boarded and sat directly next to her. He began to engage her in unwanted conversation.

He then put his arms around her and grabbed her breast. The victim pushed the suspect away, ran down the stairs and off the bus.

The suspect is described as a slim black man, aged between 20 and 25. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, dark jacket and scarf around his mouth.

Detectives from the Met’s Roads and Transport Command (RTPC) are investigating.

Pc Jay Thorn said: “This has left the victim feeling violated and now anxious about using public transport.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the man wanted for questioning to contact us as soon as possible.”

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact police on 020 7327 4444 and quote CAD 1391/12Dec.

To give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit http://www.crimstoppers-uk.org you can tweet @MetCC with any information.
