West Auckland Police have issued an image of a man whom they believe can assist them with their enquiries into a violent incident in Henderson at about 5.00am on Sunday morning the 29 June 2008.
In the incident a man believed to be armed with a knife has gained entry to the rear of business premises on Great North Road, Henderson. The male offender has assaulted two teenage occupants, a male and a female on site.
During the incident the male victim was rendered unconscious and the female was then sexually assaulted for a duration lasting about 30 minutes.
