Police hunt man over Auckland attack

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 27/04/2017

Three "good Samaritans" who helped a woman after she was attacked on an Auckland road can help investigators, police say.

The three women stopped on Dominion Road in the early morning on April 2 to help a woman, aged in her mid-20s, who appeared in distress.

Police say the woman had earlier got out of a taxi and was walking along Dominion Road near to the intersection of Mt Albert Road when a man pulled up in a dark-coloured car and dragged her into the back seat.

He threatened the woman, but she managed to fight him off and escape, Detective Sergeat Richard Sami says.

The man then drove off, while the woman was found soon-after by the three "good Samaritans", who dropped her home to Onehunga.

"We've made a number of enquiries over the past few weeks as we continue our search for the offender, but we also want to speak to the three women who helped the victim," Det Sgt Richard Sami says.

He said the woman was wearing white jeans, a grey t-shirt and black high heels on the night of the attack.
