Witness appeal after women abused at bus stop


Essex police would like to speak to witnesses after a woman was verbally abused at a bus stop in New London Road, Chelmsford.

Police received reports that the victim, aged in her 30s, was waiting for a bus outside the Ivory Peg between 5.25pm and 5.35pm on Wednesday, April 17. Following a brief conversation with a man at the bus stop, the man then began to verbally abuse her, before leaving on foot.

The man has been described as being white and wore a black short and trousers. He had short mousy-coloured hair, and had a wart or blister to the left side of his mouth.

It is believed that he was sat at the bus stop at the time the victim arrived, and may have had several carrier bags and a backpack with him.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Chelmsford’s Local Policing Team on 101 quoting the crime reference number 42/61260/19.

Alternatively, you can submit an anonymous report to Crimestoppers by phone on 0800 555 111 or through their website.
