Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sex­ual as­sault which oc­curred in Can­nons Creek Park last week.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Dave Jones of the Porirua CIB says the al­leged as­sault oc­curred around 5am on Sun­day, April 29.

‘‘The 21-year-old vic­tim en­tered the park via an al­ley­way from Worces­ter St. As she walked into the park she no­ticed a group of males among trees be­side the al­ley­way.

‘‘ The of­fender is de­scribed as Samoan in his thir­ties or for­ties, of tall height and solid build with an afro-style hair­cut. It’s un­der­stood he also spoke to the vic­tim in Samoan.’’

The vic­tim lost a pink Tele­com cell­phone in the at­tack. Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Porirua po­lice on 04 238 1400 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
