Police investigating the sexual assault of a boy on a bus in Northolt have released this image of a man they want to identify.
The incident took place in Northolt back on Thursday, August 12, in the afternoon.
The victim (a teenage boy) boarded a route 282 bus near the White Hart Roundabout just after 4pm.
A man had engaged him in conversation at the bus stop and sat next to him on the upper deck of the bus.
On the journey towards Ealing Hospital, the man made remarks of a sexual nature and touched the victim inappropriately.
Det Insp John Millward said: “This was a frightening experience for the young victim. Fortunately, he did not sustain any physical injuries, but he was understandably left very shaken.
“We have conducted a number of enquiries to identify the man. If anyone recognises him, I would urge them to come forward.”
