Police hunting attacker release images of stolen items

12:45 pm on 17 November 2008

The police in West Auckland have images of items stolen from a school girl, as they continue to hunt for a man who posed as a truancy officer before sexually assaulting her.

The 15-year-old was walking home from school along Hobsonville Road last week when the man picked her up, under the guise of checking whether she was wagging.

He drove her to her home and attacked her.

The police have released pictures of her navy blue backpack and red cellphone.

They're hoping someone will know where the items are, describing them as of considerable importance to the inquiry.
