Detectives investigating a sexual assault at a west London bus stop are re-appealing for help from the public to trace a man they wish to speak to in connection with the incident. 

At around 06:25hrs on 27 July 2016, a 58-year-old woman was waiting for a Route 260 bus on Acton Lane in Brent, opposite Willesden County Court, when a man approached her and offered her money to go with him. She refused and as she boarded the bus, the man sexually assaulted her.

Police have now linked a second incident which occurred on 13 September 2016 at around 07:30hrs when a school girl was walking towards the Route 260 bus stop in Pound Lane, NW10. The suspect engaged the 14-year-old in a similar conversation before sexually assaulting her. 

The suspect is described as a black man, aged between 45 and 50 years, of slim build and between 5ft 10ins and 6ft 4ins tall with short black hair. He was described as wearing matching beige/brown fleck jacket and trousers. 

Officers from the Roads and Transport Policing Command investigate.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Natalie Baynes on 07770 315690. To remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

No arrests have been made.
