An alleged sexual assault in the Wellington suburb of Tawa is being investigated.
Police say a woman was walking north along Duncan Street near the overbridge to the Tawa railway station last night when she was grabbed from behind by a man who indecently assaulted her.
They said she fought back and the man ran off towards Tawa College.
He was described as being about 1.7 metres tall, and of medium build.
He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and a pair of dark green camouflage knee-length shorts.
