Teenage girl flees street attack

A teenager was chased and grabbed by a man in South Auckland yesterday after he made sexual remarks.

The 15-year-old was walking down Lambie Dr in Manukau at 9am when an Indian man drove up beside her and requested she perform a sex act on him, a police spokeswoman said. 

The man then chased the girl and grabbed her around the waist.

The spokeswoman said the victim escaped unharmed and called police.

The man was believed to have been driving a blue truck, possibly with a flat deck on the back.

Anyone with information about the incident can call Counties Manukau police.
