Indecent assault on Leicester bus passenger

A woman was sexually assaulted by man who sat next to her on a bus in Leicestershire.

The 22-year-old woman was on the number 84 travelling from Leicester to Dunton Bassett on Monday evening.

She shouted at the man and he then left the bus at a stop near the Co-op in Broughton Astley.

Police said the attacker had a "distinctive squint" and appeared to have an injured forehead.

He is white, aged 35 to 45, and about 6ft 3in tall with brown and grey cropped hair.

Smartly dressed

He was smartly dressed in a blue shirt, dark tie and a three-quarter length black woollen overcoat.

Police said the man had earlier been sitting on the top deck, but came downstairs to sit next to the woman, who was at the back of the bus.

Pc Phil Hurst said: "When the bus left Leicester it was quite full so I am sure someone may have seen the man as he was sitting upstairs or when he came down the stairs."

Anyone with information about the assault, which happened at about 1825 GMT, should contact the Leicestershire force.
