Appeal for information after 15 year old boy was assaulted on bus, Kidderminster

Officers in Kidderminster have exhausted all lines of enquiry, and are now appealing for witnesses and information following an assault on a 15-year-old boy on the number 3 Diamond bus travelling from Kidderminster town centre towards the birchen coppice estate on Friday 30 June 2017.

At around 2:55pm the boy was sitting on the bus, when it is reported that a man described as white, aged in his 50's, around 5ft 10ins in height, of a slim build with long grey hair and a small amount of grey stubble, wearing a pair of black or brown jean and a big dark waist length jacket, approached the boy.

The 15-year-old victim did not suffer any serious injuries, but has been left shaken by the incident.

PC Ian Heeks of West Mercia Police, said, "We are conducting enquiries and are requesting the public's assistance to help determine the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

"I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed and has information regarding the incident, and in particular appeal for the man described to come forward.
