Longsight Bus Attacker

Face of evil

Police have released a CCTV image after a man sexually assaulted a teenage girl on a bus going to Longsight.

At about 7.45pm on Sunday 16 February 2012, the 14-year-old victim was on the upper deck the 192 bus that had left Manchester city centre, when the offender got on at Daisy Mill on Stockport Road in Longsight. 

The offender sat down next to the victim and asked her for money. He then put his jacket over her leg and sexually assaulted her. 

The victim stood up and walked away, then got off the bus. 

The offender was seen to leave the bus outside Longsight Library, on Stockport Road. 

The man was filmed on CCTV inside the bus, and officers have now released an image. 

The offender is described as being a black man in his 20s, of medium build and with a bald head. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a black T shirt and carrying a black leather jacket. 

Police Constable Pete Baldwin said: "This was an incident that left the victim badly distressed. 

"We have carried out a number of inquiries to trace the offender and now we have released an image taken from CCTV, so that we can ask anyone who may recognise the offender to speak to police." 

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 4223 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
