A 15-year-old girl boarded a route 18 bus outside the Jubilee Clock at 3.50pm on December 13.

A man boarded and kicked the girl in the chest and slapped her in the face as he went to climb to the top deck, police said.

The victim got off the bus two stops later and the suspect also left the bus.

When the victim boarded another bus the man was already on board, and told the bus driver what had happened.
