The police have issued a grainy CCTV image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with an allegation of upskirting on a 148 bus in White City.
At around 5.30pm on Monday, 12 September a girl, who is aged under 16, reported that a man was using a mobile phone camera to take a photo up her dress.
The man was challenged by the victim’s family member and he got off at the next stop shortly before it arrived at White City Bus Station.
The man is described as black, aged in his mid-40s, about 5ft9ins of medium build. He had very short hair and a short beard with bits of grey in it.
He was wearing a denim jacket, dark jeans and grey trainers. He was carrying a navy rucksack which had lighter blue strips on the shoulder straps.
Detective Sergeant Fiona Craig of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said, “This was an extremely distressing incident for the victim and her family. We are keen to speak to the man who was on the bus that day. If that man was you, or if you recognise him, please do the right thing and contact us as a matter of urgency so we can establish all the facts.”
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 5373/12SEP.
