NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 21/06/2016

A hunt is on for a man following a prolonged sexual attack on a woman in her Porirua home.

Police say the man, described as about 35 to 45 years old, attacked the 65-year-old woman for several hours after knocking on the door of her Waitangirua home early on Friday morning.

The attacker told the woman, who was alone, he had been looking for his daughter and had also gone to another house in the area with the same story, police said.

They say the woman is now being supported by family and agencies.

Several investigators are currently working on the case and police have called for anyone who may have seen the man.

They have described him as a clean-shaven, well-spoken, Pacific Island or Maori man who is about 6ft tall with short, black hair.

At the time of the attack he was wearing blue jeans, a white shirt and grey sweatshirt.
