Police in Walsall have released images of a man they want to identify after a woman was sexually assaulted as she travelled on a bus.

The assault took place on the number 51 bus on Sunday 11 May at around 6.20pm as the bus pulled into Walsall Town centre bus station.

A 17-year old girl was sat on the top deck of the bus , when she was approached by a man who put his arm around her and sexually assaulted her.

He is described as a black man, late teens-early twenties, wearing a "snapback" style black cap with a camouflage peak, jeans with white writing on the back pocket, with stud earrings in both ears.

DC Lisa Gilbert from Walsall Public Protection Unit said: "The suspect had got on the bus about 6pm eating a bag of chips and later approached 17-year-old girl as she sat upstairs. The girl assaulted is quite distinctive as she has pink hair and I need to hear from anyone who saw the incident or anyone who recognises the offender shown in the image to contact police at Bloxwich on 101."
