Po­lice have ar­rested and charged an 18-year-old man in re­la­tion to an al­leged sex at­tack in a woman’s Porirua home.

A Ti­tahi Bay woman re­ported to po­lice that a stranger had knocked on her door early on Satur­day morn­ing, July 5, and claimed he then forced en­try into her home and sex­u­ally as­saulted her.

Porirua po­lice have con­firmed a man was ar­rested last Thurs­day af­ter­noon and charged in re­la­tion to the al­leged at­tack.

He ap­peared in Porirua District Court to face charges in­clud­ing un­law­ful sex­ual con­nec­tion and bur­glary.

Welling­ton po­lice spokesman Nick Bohm said the man was re­manded in po­lice cus­tody and was to reap­pear for a bail hear­ing.

Po­lice planned to op­pose bail, he said.
