A man who sexually assaulted two teenage girls within one hour of each other has been convicted.

Andrew Godman, 34, of Salehurst Road, Brockley, was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault and will be sentenced next month.

He abused them on November 15 and on both occasions sat next to the girls and sexually assaulted them for a prolonged period.

The first assault, on the 226 bus to Eltham, lasted for an hour and a half, and the girl tried to stop several times to get the attention of other passengers.

However, around 90 minutes later, Godman boarded the 273 bus towards Grove Park and groped a second girl on the thigh which lasted for around five minutes.

The girl escaped and got off earlier than she intended to.

Godman was arrested days later and during a police interview he admitted it was him sitting on the bus but denied sexual assault.

He was charged on February 13 and will now be sentenced on July 13 after being found guilty.

Detective Constable Darren Barlow said: "These were appalling sexual assaults in public on two young, vulnerable girls who were understandably left shaken and distressed by the attacks.

"Despite having CCTV evidence which clearly showed the assaults, Godman denied wrongdoing and suggested that the allegations were made up, making the victims relive their experiences in court. Thankfully, a jury saw through his denials.
