Sexual assaults at bus station: appeal to trace man
Detectives from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command are releasing an image of man they want to trace following two sexual assaults by the same suspect at Vauxhall bus station in Lambeth.
The incidents happened between 15.00hrs and 15.30hrs on Monday 20 September at bus stop J in Vauxhall bus station.
In the first incident, the suspect sexually touched an 18-year-old woman as she stood at the stop before he walked away.
In the second offence, the suspect sexually touched a 19-year-old woman. The victim challenged his behaviour. When the bus arrived the victim boarded it. The suspect remained at the bus stop and could be heard shouting abuse at the victim.
The suspect is described as a white male with an Eastern European accent, of medium build with short curly fair hair. He wore a grey hoody with the hood up, dark grey trousers and white slider-type sandals with no socks.
Detective Chief Inspector Michael Dougall, said: “No one should have to put up with unwanted attention or predatory, sexual or violent behaviour.
“We have released this image in the hope that someone will recognise this person and help police identify him. I would urge anyone who can help to get in contact.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD4556/20SEP21. Alternatively, you can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
