Officers from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC) are investigating the incidents which took place between July 2 and September 21.

The first victim, a 27-year-old woman, had fallen asleep on the N18 bus at around 2am and was woken up by a man indecently touching her.

She pushed him away before getting off the bus and calling police.

Three similar sexual assaults took place on the 226 bus.

A 21-year-old woman was inappropriately touched on the leg in Acton Lane, Harlesden on July 17 at around 9am.

The second woman was targeted on August 8 at around 3.15pm when a man sat next to her and touched himself. She got off the bus in High Street, Harlesden.

The last incident happened on September 21 at around 5pm when a man sat next to a 31-year-old woman and indecently touched her.

She challenged him and he got off the bus at Park Royal station.

Investigating officers believe the same man was involved in all three incidents.

Anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV image or who has any information should call Detective Constable Annie Garrard or Detective Constable Teresa Moore from on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
