Police release CCTV image of suspect after pregnant woman is sexually assaulted on bus
Man sat next to a 33-year-old pregnant woman and began rubbing her leg
Police have released CCTV images of a man they are hunting in connection with a terrifying assault on a pregnant woman on a Birmingham bus in May.
The man was on the number 31 bus from Acocks Green to the city centre on 20 May between 9.30am and 10.25am. The suspect boarded the bus and sat next to the 33-year-old woman before beginning to rub her leg.
As the woman then got up to leave the man stood behind her and assaulted her again. The woman got off the bus and was followed by the man before she approached security guards at New Street station for help.
The suspect is described as Asian, 5ft 6ins tall, slim build and in his 20s. He was wearing a grey jumper with black tracksuit bottoms and had black hair and a small goatee beard.
Detective Constable Warren Moore, from Force CID, said: "This was an unprovoked assault against an unsuspecting, pregnant member of the public, who was visiting the area.
"The assault made her uncomfortable and unnerved and has had a lasting effect on her; she is unable to buses through fear of this happening again."
Anyone with information is asked to contact local police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
