Waitakere Police seek victim of indecent assault

Waitakere Police seek victim of indecent assault

Wednesday, 25 June 2014 - 4:05pm


Waitakere Police are seeking to identify a young female who was indecently assaulted while waiting for her train at the Glen Eden train station.

The young lady was seated and waiting on the city bound train platform at approximately 5:30pm on Friday 2nd of May 2014 when she was approached by a highly intoxicated male.

He initially sat next to her and tried to speak to her, but she stood up and walked away from him. He got up and followed her, and as she walked along the platform he attempted to put his arm on her shoulder and put his hand on her breast.

The victim subsequently moved away and boarded a city bound train. The incident was witnessed by a member of the public who contacted police.

The male was arrested a short time later and has been charged with indecent assault.

Constable Briar Engel of the Waitakere Combined Investigation Unit says this is a relatively unusual situation where police have charged an alleged offender but are still seeking the victim.

"We would like to speak to the victim or anyone who may know who she is. We'd also like to speak to anyone else who witnessed this incident.

"Although a charge has been laid it would still be of assistance to police as part of the process that we speak to the victim. It would also allow us to offer any necessary support to her."

The victim is described by a witness as Pakeha/Caucasian, in her late teens or early twenties, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall (177 CM) with long blond hair and wearing a white top.

Anyone with information can contact Constable Engel at Waitakere Police on 09 839 0600 Ext 97022. Information can also be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Werewolf Issue #49: Gordon Campbell Interviews Laila Harre

For 25 years, Labour and National have been in virtual agreement about the basics of economic policy, and differed mainly on how to go about managing its social consequences.

Such is the power of the economic orthodoxy that when opposition parties arise – say, in the shape of the Greens – their “credibility” is measured by the extent to which they give the appearance of learning and abiding by the ruling consensus.

The tension between the desire for change – and the inability of the current political framework to deliver it – creates openings for populists of all stripes. It is what has made the emergence of Internet Mana so interesting. More>>
