Molestation charges for face-licking bus driver

A bus driver in Falun in central Sweden has been charged for licking the faces of young girls while on duty.

The driver reportedly asked the girls to come up to the driver’s area and then proceeded to lick and kiss their faces.

The 43-year-old driver has now been charged with sexually molesting girls on two separate occasions, according to local media reports.

Both incidents took place in November 2008. One involved a pair of 13-year-old girls, while the second incident involved a 16-year-old girl.

Prosecutors also claim the bus driver offered the girls cigarettes, according to the Dalarnas Tidningar newspaper.

The driver admits to having contact with the girls, but denies that he committed any crime. He claims instead that the girls were being rowdy.

The bus company, Swebus, is aware of the situation, but doesn’t want to comment further.

The driver continues to work for the company pending the outcome of the investigation.
