A man who exposed himself to a teenage girl on a bus in Hounslow has been jailed for a year.
The court heard he boarded the 237 in Hounslow on March 12 and sat next to the 15-year-old at the back of the top deck.
The 30-year-old, who was already subject to a sexual offences notification order, started to engage in sexual activity, exposing himself to the schoolgirl.
He then edged towards her, at which point she got up and left the bus.
The whole ordeal lasted approximately 20 minutes, the court heard.
The girl reported the incident to police the following day and Makhlouf was identified using on-board CCTV footage.
He handed himself in at Hounslow police station on April 12 after being told officers were looking for him.
Makhlouf admitted indecent exposure and breaching a sexual offences notification order.
His sexual offences notification order, requiring him to regularly check in with police, was also extended from seven to 10 years.
Detective Superintendent Adnan Qureshi said: "This was an excellent result, which has seen the perpetrator of an appalling crime receive a jail sentence and an extension of his sexual notification order.
"Our message is clear - if you commit an offence on the transport network, we will pursue and arrest you. Crime on London's bus system will not be tolerated - we will arrest those responsible."
Makhlouf's sentencing came two months after the 'Report It to Stop It' campaign was launched by police and Transport for London (TfL) to encourage more people to report unwanted sexual behaviour on the capital's public transport network.
Steve Burton, TfL's director of enforcement and on-street operations, said: "We commend the bravery of this teenage girl in coming forward to report this awful incident.
"The sentencing handed down to this man shows how seriously we, alongside our policing partners, take unwanted sexual behaviour.
"If anyone experiences any unwanted sexual behaviour whilst travelling on our transport network please let the police know by calling 101 or texting 61016.
"We will continue to work with our policing partners to do all we can to ensure offenders like Makhlouf receive the toughest penalties available."
