3:07 pm on 3 August 2009

Police have charged a man with a series of sex attacks in the Auckland region.

They include a high-profile case in November last year, in which a man posing as a truancy officer sexually assaulted a 15-year-old in her home in West Auckland.

Police say a health support worker, 41, will appear in the Waitakere District Court on Monday afternoon facing 18 charges - including sexual violation, indecent assault and abduction.

The charges relate to six complainants attacked since January 2007, with four of them young females aged between 13 and 17 years old at the time.

Detective Inspector Bruce Scott says there may be other young women who may now wish to come forward.
