Police are appealing for information after a teenage girl was indecently assaulted on a bus at St Marys yesterday morning.

About 10.15am on Wednesday, the 16-year-old girl boarded a bus on Wilmot Street and found a seat.

Investigators have been told the man indecently assaulted the girl a short time later, while threatening her.

The girl pressed the departure signal and got off the bus on Phillip Street.
