Sexual assault in Raglan - offender and witnesses sought


Waikato Police are investigating the sexual assault of a 37-year-old woman in Raglan, by an unknown man.

The offence happened shortly before 10pm last night (Saturday 23 February), in a small park at the intersection of Tahuna and Nihinihi Avenues.

Police are in the early stages of the investigation and seek assistance from the public in relation to any suspicious activity or people seen in that vicinity between 9pm and 11pm.

“We are continuing to make a number of enquiries but need our community to contact us with any information," says Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Greene.

"We believe someone will know this man and we are keeping an open mind as to why he was in this area.

"It is possible that he lives in the area or was a visitor, or he could have just been in the area after a night out.

“We want to hear from anyone who saw anything, even if it was minor and we ask residents or owners of premises that have CCTV cameras to contact Police.”
