Bus sex attack suspect ‘serially groped women’

Wanted: Police have released images of this man, suspected of sexual assaults on nine women on buses

THE hunt is on for a man suspected of sexually assaulting nine women on London buses.

Police have released CCTV images of the alleged attacker after the female passengers aged 23 to 62 were touched inappropriately, mostly while travelling at night.

The nine offences occurred between July 4 and September 25 on several bus routes including the 38, 48, 149, 253, 254 and 279.

All of the attacks happened from late afternoon onwards — mainly between 7pm and 11pm — and most of them were in the north and east of the capital.

Det Con Teresa Moore said: ‘We clearly need to find whoever is responsible for these assaults, and I would like to thank the women for coming forward to report them.

‘Under no circumstances will this offending be tolerated.

‘It is imperative women in London should be able to board public transport without fear of being targeted.

‘Each incident has left the women feeling very upset and shocked, and they are being supported by my team.’
