Officers from the Metropolitan Police Service's Roads and Transport Policing Command are appealing for help in identifying a man after a woman was sexually assaulted at a Lambeth bus stop.

On Wednesday, 14 October, at about 00:40hrs, a 43-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a man as she waited at a bus stop outside Costcutter on Norwood Road, Lambeth.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged between 40 and 45 years old. He wore a green cap, dark zip-up jacket, jeans and white trainers. 

Officers have released a CCTV image from a Route 68 bus, which the victim boarded after the incident.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Michael Halifax on 07826 536146 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference 192949.

Unwanted sexual behaviour on the transport network is not tolerated and all sexual offences are taken very seriously.

Always report incidents of this nature to the police. If you have any information please dial 101, but in an emergency always call 999.

The Metropolitan Police Service recently jointly launched the Report it to stop it campaign with Transport for London, the British Transport Police and City of London Police, which aims to further increase the reporting of unwanted sexual behaviour on public transport in the capital.
