An 18-year-old woman has been attacked in what police believe was a sexually motivated assault in a Nelson toilet block.

The teen managed to fight off her attacker in Jubilee Park between 11.30pm and midnight on Wednesday.

Her attacker is described as Maori, in his 40s and of large build, with bushy eyebrows and a long, thick beard that came down to his chest.

The woman was shaken but received only a minor injury.
