NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 12/03/2017

A 59-year-old man is due to appear in Auckland District Court charged with allegedly attacking a young woman in a Riverhead quarry two weeks ago.

The man was arrested at a house in Onehunga on Sunday afternoon and has been held in custody.

He is charged with abduction, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and assault with intent to commit sexual violation. He is being held in custody.

A 2008 Ford Mondeo has been seized and forensically examined.

The woman woke up in the quarry at Riverhead to find a baseball bat-armed man standing over her on the morning of February 26.

She didn't remember a significant period of time from being with her friends in Ponsonby, on Saturday night until she woke up in the quarry to find she was being attacked.
