Bus passenger exposed himself

Detectives are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to lone women travelling on buses in the Whitechapel area of Tower Hamlets.

The incidents occurred on two separate occasions.

At around 1:25pmon Thursday, 15 March, the 21-year-old victim was sitting on the upper deck of a Route 135 bus travelling from Old Street Station towards Westferry Station.

A man boarded the bus on Commercial Road and also took a seat on the upper deck. He tried to engage the victim in conversation before exposing himself to her.

The victim moved away and the suspect got off the bus near Westferry DLR station.

The second incident occurred at around 8am on Wednesday, 28 March whilst a 23-year-old woman was sitting on a Route 205 bus travelling from Paddington Station towards Bow Church Station.

Both the victim and suspect were on the upper deck of the bus towards the back. The suspect approached the victim and exposed himself to her.

The suspect is described as an Indian man aged in his 30s, with a dark beard and moustache.

Detective Constable Jo O’Connor, of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “Both women were understandably very shocked by these incidents and no one should be subjected to this.

“If anyone has any information that could help us identify this man then please get in touch.”
