The offender has been described as:
• Male Polynesian
• Dark brown complexion

• Almond shaped eyes (wide apart)

Detective Simon Potter of Counties Manukau West Police says that a piece of material was torn from the offender’s clothing during the assault. “It is likely that the offender was left with a damaged piece of clothing. We are interested to hear from anyone who knows anything about this assault or who knows someone who might fit the description. A gold tooth is a particularly identifiable feature.”
