Police are re-appealing for a man, who may have been on the same bus as a woman who was sexually assaulted, to come forward.
At around 10pm on Friday 25 April 2014, the woman was sat on the top deck of the 201 bus from Piccadilly to Hyde.
A man approached her and sexually assaulted her before he got off at Ashworth Lane and walked off towards John Kennedy Road, Hattersley.
He is described as being white, in his late teens, of medium build, 5ft 6in tall with light brown hair. He wore a dark hooded jacket with patches on the arms, dark jeans, leather belt, trainers and spoke with a local accent.
Detective Constable Fiona Rigby from Tameside South INPT said: â€œFrom what we have been told, we believe a man was involved in an altercation at Hyde Bus Station, near to the toilets and Stand A where he received a cut to head and was bleeding quite badly. Â He then got onto the 201 and went onto the top deck before speaking to the offender who we believe got on the 201 bus outside the Queens Pub which is the stop after Hyde Bus Station.
â€œHe is described as being white, of stocky build with balding hair, in his late 20s/early 30s and wore dark clothing. It is not known when he got off the bus but the upper deck was empty when the assault happened.
â€œI would appeal to this man or anyone else who may know what happened, to contact police as soon as possible.â€
