Woman sexually assaulted at McDonald's

A 42-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at a South Auckland McDonald's yesterday.

The woman was using the hand basin in the bathroom of the Manurewa store on Great South Rd about 2.30pm when she was grabbed from behind, a police spokeswoman said.

The offender, thought to be 10 to 14 years old, came out of a toilet cubicle and grabbed her crotch before fleeing the store "laughing".

The boy was a regular customer at the McDonald's, the spokeswoman said. 

He was of a chubby build and wore electric-blue shorts. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Counties-Manukau police.
