The woman got off the bus and was followed by the attacker until she approached security guards at New Street station for help.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, is described as Asian, 5ft 6ins tall, slim build and black hair with a small goatee beard, wearing a grey jumper with black tracksuit bottoms.
