Police officers have released images of a man they want to identify and speak with in connection with a series of more than 10 sexual assaults against Muslim women on the London bus network.

The offences occurred from February 2022 to September 2023, predominately in the afternoons and evenings on the bus network around Ealing, Hammersmith, Westminster and Hounslow areas.

For many of the offences, the suspect or the victim boarded the bus at Westfield Shepherds Bush, Ealing Broadway or Acton High Street.

The suspect targets Muslim women, sits next to them on the bus and touches them. He doesn’t speak to them.

So far police have made no arrests and enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant Matthew Brown, of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “We are aware of social media posts regarding this individual and appreciate the concern that these incidents will cause. We would like to assure the community that we are doing all that we can to identify and locate the suspect.

“While his face is covered in the images, we are hoping that anyone who knows him will recognise him or his clothing and get in touch.
