The 63-year-old man who allegedly indecently assaulted 15 women while they were exercising alone has been given another week's remand before his counsel will argue that his name suppression should continue.

The man is alleged to be the offender dubbed the "Port Hills groper", who grabbed, groped, and licked women who were running near the Rapaki and Mt Vernon tracks, and in St Martins.

The oldest charge dates back to 2010.

In the Christchurch District Court held at Nga Hau e Wha marae public defender counsel Moana Cole said she was still waiting for a report to arrive from overseas for the hearing.

Judge Raoul Neave agreed to remand the man to March 4 with the name suppression continuing.
