The Met Police Service’s Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for information following a complaint of sexual assault on a bus in Westminster.

Detectives say a 14 year old girl on the 436 bus at Park Lane complained of ‘being sexually touched by a man’ at around 4 pm on Tuesday 24th February.

The suspect is described as a middle-aged Asian man, with short dark hair, balding at the top.

He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a black rucksack.

Police officers are releasing a CCTV image and ask anyone with information to contact Detective Constable Clare Beauchamp.

DC Beauchamp is leading the investigation, on 07920 590195 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference 173251.

The Met Police say:

Unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network is not tolerated and all sexual offences are taken very seriously.

Always report incidents of this nature to the police. If you have any information please dial 101, but in an emergency always dial 999 immediately.
