Witnesses are sought after a teenage boy reported being sexually assaulted on a bus in Chatham.

The 17-year-old was travelling on the Arriva 145 bus from Chatham between 4pm and 5pm on Monday 20 March 2023  when a man approached him.

During the incident the suspect, who appeared intoxicated, is alleged to have inappropriately touched the teenager and also made some crass remarks.
