POLICE are hunting a middle-aged man who subjected a teenage girl to an indecent assault as she made her way home from school.

The Bromley victim left Ravens Wood School and boarded a bus which headed down Oakley Road.

Having sat down towards the rear of the vehicle, a man sat next to her and started a conversation. When she ignored him, he stroked her leg.

In moment of panic, she rang the bell to raise the alarm. The man fled at the next stop.

He is described as being aged about 50, thin and with grey cropped hair. He was wearing a dark jumper and jeans and had a speech impediment.
