Appeal following sexual assault in Liverpool city centre

Detectives have issued CCTV images of a man who could have information that may assist with their enquiries following a sexual assault on a bus in Liverpool city centre. 

At around 7.30pm on Friday 3 December 2021, a female was on the 21 bus at Queens Square bus station when a man touched her inappropriately.

The man got off the bus in the Islington area.

CCTV and witness enquiries are ongoing to identify the suspect responsible, and detectives have issued images of a man they believe could assist with their investigation. 

Detective Inspector Chris Saidi said, “We take reports of sexual assault very seriously, and we are very keen to speak with anyone with information about the incident which took place.

“This was an extremely traumatic experience for the victim, and we are working hard to ensure that the person responsible is identified.

“I am also appealing for people to come forward if you recognise the male featured in these images. We believe he could hold information that could be vital to our continuing enquiries.”

StreetSafe is a pilot service for anyone to anonymously tell us about public places where they have felt or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, eg street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, eg being followed or verbally abused. 

The tool is hosted on the national policing website police.uk and enables members of the public to anonymously drop a pin onto a map in areas where they don’t feel safe, regardless of whether or not a crime has taken place. It allows them to highlight factors that cause them concern and could range from a poorly-lit pathway to instances of public harassment.

Please note: ‘StreetSafe’ is not for reporting crime or incidents.

If something has happened to you or someone you know (including in public spaces online) you can call police on 101 or report online.
