Appeal launched after teenage girl is sexually assaulted on bus in Milton Keynes

    Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses to a sexual assault in Milton Keynes.

    Sometime between 3.30pm and 5pm on Friday (19/8), the offender sat next to the victim, a teenage girl, on the number six bus between Fishermead, central Milton Keynes and Heelands and placed his hand on her leg.

    The victim moved to a different seat but the offender followed her.

    As the victim stood up to get off the bus, the offender grabbed the victim, causing her to fall on other passengers, and the offender inappropriately touched the victim over her clothing.

    The victim then got off the bus in Heelands.

    She suffered bruising to her arm where she was grabbed but did not require hospital treatment.

    The offender is described as a mixed race man, approximately 30-years-old, around 6ft tall, of skinny-medium build, with black straight hair with short back and sides and a small moustache.

    He was wearing a cream thobe with orange patterns.

    PC Joe Garvey, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “I am appealing for any witnesses to this incident to please come forward.
