Toronto police have released a new photo of a man wanted in an alleged sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl on a TTC bus.

The picture of the man was taken by a passenger on an eastbound Bloor-Danforth subway train on Sept. 26, after the suspect was seen deliberately moving to sit beside a teenage girl, police said.

On Oct. 3 around 9 a.m., a 12-year-old girl got on a 168 Symington bus leaving Dundas West subway station, where a man followed the girl onto the back of the bus. The suspect sat beside the girl and police said she was sexually assaulted.
