The POLICE are looking for a man who is said to have behaved indecently towards girls on two buses.
The “disturbing” incidents, one in late June and the other in early July, are believed to involve the same man.
The man, who is believed to be in his late 20s or early 30s, was on the number 3 bus in Crawley as it passed through Gossops Green on Wednesday 29 June. The incident happened around 4:05 p.m.
He is said to have behaved rudely in front of a girl who was not touched and got off the bus.
The second incident occurred at 4.50pm on Saturday 2 July as the bus passed through Pound Hill.
The man is said to have behaved indecently again and touched the girl’s leg. She got off the bus.
Detective Constable James Butcher said: “These incidents were very distressing for the victims but they were able to report immediately what had happened. She and her parents will be assisted by our officers as we continue the investigation.
“This man’s behavior is very concerning and is causing clear concern and distress. He is described as in his late 20s or early 30s, with a beard, wearing a light blue and gray hooded ‘Hoodrich’ tracksuit and carrying a small suitcase, with extended handles.
“Anyone who recognizes him, who has observed similar suspicious behavior at the scene, or has any other information is asked to come forward on-line or call 101 and quote serial number 1093 dated 06/29. on.”
