Young girl fondled by elderly man on Lincoln bus

Police have launched an investigation after an elderly man inappropriately touched a teenage girl on a bus travelling from Grantham to Lincoln.

The 14-year-old girl got on the bus at Grantham to travel into Lincoln at 9.10am on Friday, October 2.

At some point during the journey an elderly man, aged between 70 and 80, also got on the bus and sat next to her at the back.

He then repeatedly touched the young girl’s leg despite her asking him not to.

The man was wearing a tartan hat, beige chinos and a gold watch.

It is not known exactly when he got on the bus but the victim did notice he was onboard at Barkston.

Officers are investigating the incident and would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed anything or who recognises the man described.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lincolnshire Police on 101 quoting incident 105 of October 2.
