- Credit: MPS
Police are hunting a man who exposed himself to a 14-year old schoolgirl on a bus in Stratford.
The man was staring at two other girls on the top deck of the 473 bus when he saw the victim, who was wearing her school uniform at the time.
He mouthed that he wanted her phone number. She told him how old she was and told him to leave her alone.
The man then stood up and exposed himself to her.
Frightened, the girl went down to the lower part of the bus. The man then got off in West Ham Lane near the junction with Paul Street.
