The woman woke up in a quarry in Riverhead early on Sunday morning and realised she was being assaulted.

She has told police she does not know how she got there, from central Auckland, more than 20 kilometres away.

Detective Senior Sergeant Kim Libby said the woman had previously been with a group of friends at the Pride Parade on Ponsonby Road.

Police said they had spoken to a man captured on CCTV, talking to her near the Mobil on Karangahape Road on Saturday night.

They said he was cooperative.

He told them he walked with the woman to a bar near Pitt Street.

The police were still trying to find a silver or grey car seen entering and leaving the quarry.
