A trilby hat-wearing man is being hunted over an alleged sex attack on a teenager on a bus in Thanet.
The 16-year-old girl said she was sitting alone at the back of the bus when he sat next to her and touched her leg several times.
Now police have released an efit of a man they want to trace in connection with the alleged assault.
The man is described as white, chubby, between 40 and 50. He told the girl his name was Mark and he spoke with a Midlands accent.
He is also described as having stubble and his hair was light. Police said he had a trilby-style hat and two mobile phones.
Police said he got on the bus with a skinny black man, around 30, with dreadlocks and who had a bruised right eye.
The second man is not wanted as part of the investigation, but police hope he might help identify the suspect.
The incident happened between 6.10pm and 7pm on the number 201 bus on Wednesday, February 19, but details have only just been released.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to phone PC Toni Collins on 01843 222121.
