Upper Hutt Police have arrested a 17-year-old male and charged him with sexual violation by rape following an attack on a visually impaired young woman near Trentham two weeks ago.

The young woman had got off an early evening commuter train at Trentham on Monday 10 July and started walking to her home. As she passed the former Brentwood School she was grabbed and sexually attacked. The attacker ran off.

Detective Sergeant Scott thanked the public for their help with information leading to the arrest.
