Man charged over sex attack
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.
