CCTV has been released of a man they want to speak to after a woman was sexually assaulted on a bus.

She was attacked on the number 51 last month as it pulled into Walsall Town centre bus station.

A 17-year old girl was sat on the top deck, when she was approached by a man who put his arm around her and sexually assaulted her.

DC Lisa Gilbert from Walsall Public Protection Unit said:

'The suspect had got on the bus about 6pm eating a bag of chips and later approached 17-year-old girl as she sat upstairs. The girl assaulted is quite distinctive as she has pink hair and I need to hear from anyone who saw the incident."
