By Ed McConnell

CCTV images have been released more than four months after a 17-year-old was allegedly sexually assaulted on a bus from Bluewater.

Detectives from the Met's Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for information following the incident which is said to have happened aboard a Route 96 bus, travelling towards Woolwich.

The offence happened on August 28 at around 6.30pm.

The suspect boarded the bus at Dartford Magistrates’ Court, went upstairs and sat next to the girl, despite there being other seats available. He then allegedly began to sexually touch her.

The victim got up from her seat and confronted the man before getting off the bus on Plumstead Corner. The suspect got off shortly after on Plumstead High Street/Lakedale Road.
