Hutt Valley Police have released a facial composite in an attempt to identify the offender involved in a sexual assault on Boxing Day in an alleyway next to Delaney Park in Stokes Valley.

"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".
