Police are investigating an incident in which a 13-year-old girl was touched inappropriately by a man on the Stagecoach number 10 Tuffley to Cheltenham bus earlier this week.
Officers are urging anyone who was on the bus between 7.30am and 8.15am on Wednesday to come forward.
After boarding the bus at Clarence Street in Gloucester, the teenager went upstairs to the top deck.
While seated she felt someone behind her grab her pony tail and brush their hands along the length of her hair.
The girl went downstairs and got off the bus on Shurdington Road at about 8.15am, but the man followed her for some time before turning back.
He is described as being of mixed heritage, about 5ft 6in tall, of slim to medium build and with short, curly black hair.
He had three small rings in one ear and was wearing a plain black jacket and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident 216 of March 13.
