CCTV APPEAL: GIRL, 14, TOUCHED BY FELLOW PASSENGER ON BUS – CROSBY

Detectives have released CCTV of a man they want to speak to after a teenage girl was inappropriately touched by an adult passenger while on a bus home from school.

The 14-year-old was on the Number 53 Stagecoach service from Crosby to Liverpool when the incident happened.

A man approached her at the bus stop in Crosby Islington and started up a conversation with her before following her onto the bus.

Once on-board the man sat next to her and continued to try and speak to her. During the journey he made inappropriate comments and also touched her thigh.

The girl got off in the Litherland area and went home where she immediately called her parents who alerted the police. She was left extremely upset and frightened by the incident but was uninjured.

Detectives are treating the incident as sexual assault and are keen to hear from anyone who was on the Number 53 between 3.50pm and 4.50pm on Tuesday 22nd July and may witnessed the incident itself or anyone acting suspiciously.

They are also keen to speak to the man in the CCTV stills or anyone who recognises him as they believe he may have information that could help them progress their investigation.

Call Detective Constable Kelly McKeon at Sefton CID on 0151 777 3844 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
