Detectives investigating a sexual assault at a bus stop in Harlesden have now linked it to a similar attack on a schoolgirl in Willesden.

The first assault occurred when a 58-year-old woman was waiting for a Route 260 bus on Acton Lane, opposite Willesden County Court, when a man approached her and offered money to go with him.

After refusing him, she was sexually assaulted as she boarded the bus at around 6.25am on July 27 last year.

Police now believe the same man struck a second time when a 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted as she walked in Pound Lane.

A man tried to engage her in conversation before he sexually assaulted her on September 13 at around 7.30am.

He is described as a black man, aged between 45 and 50, of slim build and standing between 5ft 10ins and 6ft 4ins tall and with short black hair.

He was wearing matching beige or brown fleck jacket and trousers at the time.

Officers from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Natalie Baynes on 07770 315690 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
