before sexually assaulting her:

police said

A Sydney bus driver repeatedly kissed a developmentally-delayed schoolgirl before indecently assaulting her while she was alone on a bus, police say.

The 13-year-old girl got on the bus outside a high school about 3pm last Thursday, police said.

She was the only passenger on the bus when the bus driver stopped, possibly on Minto Road, Minto, and approached the schoolgirl, police said.

“He allegedly kissed her repeatedly before indecently assaulting her,’’ police said in a statement.

Police were told of the alleged assault on Monday and began their investigation, viewing CCTV footage from the bus company.

Officers arrested a 42-year-old man yesterday, where he was later charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault and is due to appear in Liverpool Local Court today.

The Herald contacted Interline Bus Services, which operates in Minto, but a spokeswoman would not confirm whether the man was one of its drivers.

“We’ve got no comment at this stage,” it was  said.
