Police are looking for a man in connection with the assault of a Porirua security guard in the early hours of Wednesday morning, in a robbery attempt.

Police detective sergeant Peter Middlemiss said the guard was on his rounds in Mohuia Cres, Elsdon, when he was approached from behind and grabbed around the neck, before the assailant demanded the guard's wallet.

When the guard refused, his was forced to the ground, kicked in the stomach and chest, and his torso stomped on, before the assailant ran off.

The guard was bruised on his torso and ribs, but was otherwise uninjured.

The male offender was described as Maori, of solid build, about 5'8" (172cm) and was wearing a black hooded sweater, dark jeans and white sneakers.
