A man has been charged with sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl.

Michael Gomez, 50, from Wilton Road in Hitchin, has been charged with a sexual offence following an incident which occurred at a bus stop in Hermitage Road, Hitchin, at around 7.20am on Monday.

The girl was approached by the man who she claims touched her shoulder, hair and back after speaking to her.

Mr Gomez has been remanded in custody and is awaiting a court date.

DC Nigel Humphrey, who is investigating, said: “It is likely there were a number of other people around when this incident occurred and I am appealing for them to come forward and contact me.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Humphrey via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101, citing crime reference G1/14/102. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
