Police are hunting for a sex attacker who groped a 15-year-old girl on a busy bus as she made her way to school.

The teenager had been travelling on the number 50 bus towards the Maypole area of Birmingham when she was sexually assaulted by a man, aged around 40-years-old.

West Midlands Police said the suspect touched the schoolgirl after he sat next to her on the bus at around 8am on Wednesday, March 19.

The young girl eventually fled from the bus in fear but has been too scared to use the service again.

Yesterday (Mon) detectives released a CCTV image taken from the bus of the suspect in a bid to track him down.

Detective Constable Warren Moore, from the force’s Safer Travel team, said: “This assault has had a lasting effect on the young girl, she is unable to use this service through fear of this happening again.

“We need to identify the person responsible to make sure that this doesn’t happen to anyone else, particularly young girls as they travel to school.”

The suspect is described as Asian, around 5 ft 6 ins tall and stockily built.


He was wearing a high-vis jacket and a black beanie hat with sunglasses.

Police say he was already on the bus at Balsall Heath and travelled further than the Druids Heath area of the city.

Anyone who recognises the suspect is asked to contact DC Moore on 101, or alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
