A pervert who sexually assaulted two women as they slept on separate night buses in Brent and Harrow has been jailed for 18 months.

Mohammed Dakwar, 24, attacked his first victim as she travelled home on February 2 this year at around 2am.

The 29-year-old woke up to find Dakwar with his arm around her while groping and trying to kiss her.

He fled after she sought help from the bus driver and is suspected of stealing her Iphone.

Dakwar struck a second time on March 23 when a 34-year-old woman in Brent woke to find him touching her intimately.

He tried to French kiss her before fleeing.

Officers arrested him after he was identified on CCTV.
