Detective Constable Mark Sutton says "People may remember the distinctive t-shirt the male was wearing which is described as being black with two purple and two yellow squares on the front of it and with white writing below the squares."

"We are encouraging anyone who has any information about the identity of this male or who was in the area at the time and may have seen anything suspicious to contact Hutt Valley Police".
