Police in Wellington are investigating an alleged sexual assault in the CBD in July.

At around 4am on Friday 17th July, the victim walked through central Wellington and after arriving at her home, she was sexually assaulted.

The victim called friends who took her to hospital where she was given treatment.

Police have made thorough inquiries and have obtained CCTV footage of the victim talking to two males, one of whom has offered to walk her home.

While the cameras show this man has travelled some of the way home with her, and police aren’t saying in any way that he is involved in the later attack however he was in the area and may have seen who else was in town, so police really need to talk to him.

These two men may have seen something that could lead to finding the attacker, so police would like to speak with them or anyone else who has information about the assault that night.

Every woman deserves to feel safe on the street and in their home, so if you have any information regarding this sexual assault, you need to contact Wellington Police.
