West Coast Police are currently investigating a sexual assault on a 27 year old woman that occurred in Westport at about 3.30pm yesterday afternoon.

Detective Sergeant Gavin Nichols of Greymouth Police said: “The circumstances surrounding this incident are of concern to us and we are keen to receive information from anyone, particularly from Westport, who may have heard or seen anything that may assist this inquiry."

Police also want to speak to 33 year old Tandy ROBERTSON in relation to this matter. He is currently wanted on an unrelated warrant for failing to appear at the Invercargill District Court. He is a Caucasian, 173cm tall, of medium build.

Mr Nichols said the woman attacked was recovering well after receiving medical treatment and assistance from Victim Support.

”We are thankful that her injuries are not more serious,” he said.

Anyone who has seen ROBERTSON, or has information as to where he may be should contact their local Police immediately. Anonymous information can also be given by calling Crimestoppers Ph 0800 555 111.
