THIS is the man police are hunting after a teenage girl was assaulted on a South Tyneside bus.
The victim was sat next to another youth, also in his teens, when the man sat behind them and tried to speak to the pair.
When they ignored him, he pushed the girl in the back before getting off the bus at Boldon Colliery. The girl wasn’t hurt.
The incident took place at about 1.40pm on Tuesday, August 28, on the X34 Stagecoach bus, when the man boarded at Nevison Avenue, South Shields.
Policing probing the assault have now released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the case.
Anyone who recognises him is asked to call Northumbria Police on 101 ext 69191.
