Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a girl on a Halifax Transit bus.

On Tuesday, Halifax police received a report of a sexual assault that had happened earlier in the day on the Route 60 bus traveling from Eastern Passage to the Bridge Terminal on Wyse Road in Dartmouth.  

A Halifax Regional Police release said a man got on the bus, sat down beside a girl he did not know and touched her in a "sexual manner."

The girl left the bus and told an adult about the incident.

Police did not provide the age of the girl.

The suspect is described as a black man in his 30s, with average build, "scruffy" facial hair and medium-length tight curly black hair. 

At the time of the incident, he was wearing grey sweatpants. He may also have been wearing flip-flops.

Police are asking anyone with information about the man or the incident to call police at 902-490-5020. 

Anonymous tips can also be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
