Indecent assault reported on bus

A wo­man SEPTA pas­sen­ger was the vic­tim of an in­de­cent as­sault aboard a North­east Philly bus on Sunday morn­ing.

The 31-year-old vic­tim rode the south­bound Route 14 bus from Bucks County in­to the North­east via Roosevelt Boulevard. When the bus made a sched­uled stop at Comly Road, a man boarded and sat down in an empty seat next to the wo­man, po­lice said. 

The man asked the wo­man for spare change. As she reached in­to her purse, the man al­legedly fondled her. The vic­tim im­me­di­ately moved away from the groper, ex­ited the bus and no­ti­fied po­lice. She de­scribed the of­fend­er as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, with scruffy blond hair and a beard. He wore a white coat and black skull cap. ••
