A man who groped a woman’s bottom as she stood at a bus stop in Northampton is being sought by police.

The woman was waiting at the bus stop in Kettering Road, between St Michael’s Road and Grove Road, between 5.25pm and 5.35pm on Wednesday, June 17, when the man approached her.

A police spokesperson said the man “grabbed her bottom, pushing her forwards, leaving her in pain and with red marks.”

The offender was a white man, aged between 20 and 30, around 6ft in height and of medium build, with broad shoulders and very short black hair.

He was clean shaven but had marks or spots on his face and possibly a mole on the right hand side of his face.

He was wearing a black tee-shirt and was carrying a blue plastic carrier bag.

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 111 555.
