Merseyside Police has released CCTV stills of a man officers would like to speak to as he may have information in relation to two incidents that have occurred on public transport in the Merseyside area recently.

The first incident occurred on Friday, 20 September. At about 6.10pm a 27-year-old woman got onto a bus at James Street, Liverpool city centre to Huyton. During the journey a man sat next to the woman and touched her on the leg inappropriately.

The offender then attempted to block the woman from leaving her seat but she later alighted from the bus and called police.

The second incident occurred on Friday, 27 December. At about 1.10pm a 21-year-old woman got onto a bus at Queens Square, Liverpool city centre to Southport. During the journey a man sat next to the woman and touched her inappropriately on the leg. When the woman alighted from the bus the man again grabbed her and the woman later called police.

Both women were left shaken following their ordeal but were uninjured.

In both instances the man is described as being Asian, aged between 20 and 30, of a slim build with stubble on his face. He was wearing a black waterproof jacket.

Officers believe the two incidents are linked.

Detectives believe the man pictured may be able to help them with their enquiries and would urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch.

Detective Inspector Andy Black, said: “These must have been distressing incidents for both women involved. No one should be subjected to such behaviour and our officers are actively seeking the man responsible.

I would urge anyone with information to contact Sefton CID on 0151 777 3055 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
