A woman was sexually assaulted as she stood on a crowded bus in Uxbridge.
It happened after the 22-year-old victim boarded the No 607 at Lees Road in Hayes at 8.20am on January 17.
The victim was standing by the driver’s cab as it travelled towards Uxbridge Town Centre when she felt a man stroke the top of her leg, police said.
He continued to do this for several seconds until the victim was able to try and move away.
The suspect went on to touch the woman’s bottom, which again lasted for several seconds, before eventually getting off the bus in York Road, Uxbridge.
Police have issued photos of a man they would like to speak to in relation to the incident.
The suspect is described as of Arabian or North African appearance, aged in his 30s, around 5ft 8ins tall with short dark hair. He was wearing a light blue fleece.
