Teen molester hunted after bus incidents

A persistent molester is being hunted by police.

He was on a 104 bus on Wednesday, July 20 at around 4pm travelling between Barking Road, East Ham and Plashet Road, when he targeted his 17-year-old victim.

She boarded the bus in Green Street, Upton Park and took a seat at the back. The bus began to empty with passengers when the man next to her began to stroke her knee.

Feeling uncomfortable, she moved to a different seat only to be followed by the pervert who started stroking her back.

She again moved seats, this time sitting next to a woman.
