Lambeth bus sex offender suspect wanted

SUSPECT: This man is suspected of indecently touching a woman

LONDON POLICE are searching for a man suspected of a sexual offence on a bus.

The incident happened at about 9pm on June 5 on a bus travelling through Lambeth, south London.

A 25-year-old woman reported the suspect placed his hand on her behind as she sat on the upstairs level and then he started making gestures at her.

She went down to alert the driver, but the suspect got away.

Police describe him as "a bald, black man, wearing a light coloured top, light green framed sunglasses. He was carrying a rucksack."

DC Anna Deighton said: "The bus was very busy and I am urging anyone who may have information to contact us. We do not tolerate unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network and we take all sexual offences very seriously.

"If someone has made you feel uncomfortable, for example touched you in an inappropriate manner, please tell the police or a member of staff. It will help police to not only target the perpetrator, but also help prevent it happening to someone else."
