A jury has found a West Norwood man guilty of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl on a London bus.

Dean Forte, 36, of Knights Hill, denied the allegation, but was convicted at Inner London Crown Court on Tuesday, April 11.

His 13-year-old victim was sat towards the back of the top deck of the 468 bus in the West Norwood area at about 4.35pm on June 27, 2016, when Forte came and sat next to her and sexually assaulted her.

Forte was arrested and convicted following a media appeal by the Metropolitan Police.

He will be sentenced on Friday, May 12.

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 to and offenders will be prosecuted."
