Police are investigating after three women were sexually assaulted while walking home in North Dunedin in separate incidents at the weekend.
Inspector Wil Black, of Dunedin, said the three women were assaulted either late at night or in the early hours of the morning over the weekend while walking home.
Every year when students returned to town police recorded an increase in such incidents, he said.
The Criminal Investigation Branch was now actively investigating the attacks and speaking to people of interest.
Insp Black urged people to be vigilant in the wake of the attacks.
"Just look after yourself, look after your mates.''
