Auckland police are seeking the public's help in identifying a young man who tried to sexually attack a 14-year-old girl.

The incident occurred in Ash St, Avondale, about 1pm on November 25.

The girl had been walking along the footpath before the youth followed her on to a property where the attempted attack took place, Detective Constable James Copeland said.

Copeland said the youth introduced himself to the girl and told her he was 17.

She described him as being of muscular build with crooked teeth. One of his upper front teeth was discoloured.

He was wearing a feather-type earring in one ear, mustard-coloured jeans that were tight around the calves and loose on the thighs, a white singlet and white Air Jordan shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call James Copeland at the Auckland Central Child Protection Team on (09) 367 0297 or e-mail james.copeland@police.govt.nz.
