Hawke's Bay police are investigating an alleged sexual attack on a 13-year-old girl in a Hastings park in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The girl was in central Hastings between midnight and 2.30am and accepted a ride back to Napier with a group of young men in a white car.
The girl claimed she was taken to a park that had a big bird cage and the sound of running water and was sexually violated there. She escaped from the men and was taken to the Hastings Police Station by a woman in a "flash sports car".
The girl, of Maori descent, was wearing a black cardigan, a yellow dress, purple pants and black high heels. She lost the cardigan, pants, shoes and a Samsung SIII cell phone.
Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and who may have seen the girl or seen her getting into the car with the males. Police are also seeking the woman who brought the girl to the police station at about 2.30am.
Police would also like to hear from anyone who can provide information in relation to the girl's missing property.
Information can be passed on to Detective Jay Mason at Hastings police on 06 873 0500 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
