A 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted near SkyCity in Auckland on Saturday morning.

The woman was assaulted by two unknown men in a car, about 4am. The attack happened after the woman became separated from a friend, the Herald on Sunday reported.

The men picked her up across the road from SkyCity and drove around the city and to a secluded cul-de-sac near Bayswater Marina on the North Shore, Detective Greg Ander told the Herald.

The woman was sexually assaulted before managing to escape from the car, which took off.

She then flagged down a rubbish truck and the driver helped her call police.

Police are seeking witnesses who saw the cream sedan pick up the woman or driving near Bayswater Marina between 5.50am and 6.30am.

Police also want to speak to the driver of a security vehicle who was seen on CCTV footage slowing down to have a look at the car as it pulled out of the street.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Ander at the North Shore CIB on (09) 477 5043 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
