Detectives investigating a case of sexual assault have issued an image of a man they would like to speak to.

A 22-year-old woman boarded a 175 bus in Romford at approximately 2.10am on Friday, 9 November 2019.

The bus was heading towards Dagenham.

The woman sat on the upper deck of the bus, near the front. At the next stop, a man boarded the bus and sat behind the woman.

The man then indecently exposed himself for some time. Once the woman realised what was happening she exited the bus.

Once she had exited, the man then left the bus at the next stop.

The man is described as of Asian appearance, medium build around 5ft 8ins tall and aged in his early twenties.

He has dark, slightly curly hair described as ‘messy’ and stubble.

He was wearing a red hooded jacket, blue jeans, black trainers and a black bag on his right shoulder.
