Waitakere Police seek to identify man in relation to alleged indecent assault

Waitemata, 21 March 2014 - Waitakere Police would like to identify and speak with the man pictured in relation to an indecent assault in Glen Eden, ten days ago. (Click picture to enlarge.)

On Tuesday 11 March, at about 12.50pm, the man was seen loitering the shops on West Coast Road. It is alleged that this person followed a woman into her workplace, indecently assaulted her, and fled.

Police are also considering whether the same man is responsible for a similar incident two weeks earlier in Waitakere. On Thursday 27 February at around 2pm, a man fitting the same description indecently assaulted a woman as she walked along the walkway, that runs between Kathmandu and BB's Café towards Great North Road, Waitakere Plaza.

The man was observed loitering around the area for some time before the assault.

Anyone with information as to the identity of this man is asked to call Constable Collette O'Regan, Waitakere Police on 09 839 0622.

Information can also be given anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
