The police in Auckland are investigating an indecent assault on a North Shore schoolgirl yesterday afternoon.

The 15-year-old was walking home through the Awaruku Bush Reserve in Torbay when a man approached her from behind and indecently assaulted her.

Police believe he may have fled on a black mountain bike.

The man they are looking for is a Caucasian man in his 40s, of strong build, with black and grey hair.

The victim said she had seen the man in the reserve several days earlier.
