A boy aged just 12 to 16 is being sought over indecent
assaults on five women in the Papakura area of Auckland since
Detectives are hunting for the teen over the assaults, all of
which occurred on a Sunday or Monday.
The boy was described as Maori or a Pacific Islander, aged
between 12 to 16 and of thin build. During three of the
attacks he was on a bicycle.
‘‘These brazen assaults are very distressing and frightening
for the victims," Detective Colin Welsh said.
‘‘We need to apprehend this offender as soon as possible to
ensure he does not have the opportunity to do this to anyone
Similar incidents were reported in Pukekohe and Papakura
between December 2012 and March 2013 but stopped until
Police fear there may be more victims and encourage anyone
who has had a similar experience in either of these areas to
contact them immediately.
Anyone with information about the assaults is asked to
contact Detective Colin Welsh on 09 295 0323 or anonymously
contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
