Police officers from the Metropolitan Police Service's Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for information following a report of sexual assault on a bus in Hounslow.

On Monday, 9 March at about 17:30hrs, a 22-year-old woman and the suspect boarded a Route 285 at Wood Street, Kingston, which was travelling to Heathrow Airport.

During journey the suspect inappropriately touched the victim. The suspect was challenged by the victim and he got off at Hampton Road West, TW13 and re-boarded another Route 285 bus a short time later.

The suspect is described as a slim Asian man, with short, dark spiked hair. He was wearing glasses, a parka-style coat with a fur trimmed hood and a light blue top, jeans, tan shoes and was carrying a distinctive dark sports bag with a white end panel.

Police officers are releasing CCTV images and ask anyone with information to contact Trainee Detective Constable Liam Kerrigan, who is leading the investigation on 07990 720298 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting reference 17393.

Unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network is not tolerated and all sexual offences are taken very seriously.

Always report incidents of this nature to the police. If you have any information please dial 101, but in an emergency always dial 999 immediately.
