Police are appealing for witnesses after a sexual assault on a bus in Redditch. West Mercia Police say the woman was sexually assaulted by a man on the number 57 bus from Winyates to Redditch. It happened between 5pm and 5.05pm on Tuesday 27 September, when the unknown man walked from the back of the bus and sat next to her. It's believed that the man has then touched the victim inappropriately several times before getting off the bus and investigating officers would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
PC Nick Gianfagna of West Mercia Police said:
"We believe there were between 15-20 people on the bus at the time who may have important information that could help to locate the suspect. He has been described as a white man, mid to late 20s, with blonde, curly hair. He was wearing a blue hat, a navy coloured fleece-type jumper and trousers with paint on them, so possibly work clothes. If you have any information or witnessed the incident please call us"
