A sex fiend who molested two schoolgirls on London buses within an hour is being hunted.
Police say the girls, both aged 13, were both blocked into their window seats by the suspect before being subjected to “appalling” sexual assaults.
They were attacked just an hour apart on different buses in south east London on the afternoon of November 15th last year.
The first victim was molested on a 126 bus heading to Eltham at around 3pm while the second was attavkrf an hour later on a 273 bus in the Grove Park area of Lewisham.
Detectives from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for information and have released an image of the suspect.
He is described as of “Mediterranean appearance”, in his mid-20s, around 5ft 6ns and of “medium athletic” build.
He had short black hair and a trimmed beard and was wearing a dark coloured coat, black trousers, blue trainers and a black cap with a small white logo.
Det Con Darren Barlow said: “These were appalling sexual assaults in public on two young, vulnerable girls who were left shaken and distressed by the attacks.
“I would urge anyone who recognises the man in these pictures to contact police immediately and provide a name.”
