A man has been convicted of sexual assault after targeting a 13-year-old-girl on a London bus.
Dean Forte, who is 36 years old, was convicted of both sexual assault and also breaking a sexual harm order.
He initially denied any wrongdoing; however, we was found guilty by a jury at Inner London Crown Court last Tuesday.
He will now be sentenced on Friday 12th May.
The sexual assault happened on Monday, 27 June last year, in the West Norwood area of London.
The 13 year old girl was sitting on the bus, as Dean sat next to her and then assaulted her.
Detective Constable Daniel Kelly of the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “Offences of this nature are taken very seriously. We would encourage any other victims to come forward. This conviction demonstrates victims will always be listened too and offenders will be prosecuted.”
