A 13-year-old girl was allegedly inappropriately touched on board a Bromley bus.

The girl was travelling on the 261 bus, near Widmore Road, when the incident occurred at about 3.30pm on July 11 last year.

She reported once home, describing the suspect as a white man with cropped fair hair, and about 5’ 10” tall. He is thought to have been wearing a flat cap, sunglasses, shorts and a T-shirt.

This is the second of two summer incidents on the same bus route, with police also looking for a teenager who exposed himself on the top deck of the 261 near Farnborough Common, in Bromley, on May 4.

The boy is described as a white male, aged between 14 and 16-years-old, wearing blue trousers and a red jacket.

Police have released CCTV images of both suspects, and ask anyone with information to contact Pc Darren Barlow, of Bromley Safer Transport Team, on 020 8721 2289 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
