Porirua Police has arrested a young person in connection to six indecent assaults in the area of Porirua’s train station recently.

Police received several reports since February of multiple women also being assaulted in Awatea Street, the Mungavin Avenue underpass and the Kivell Street area.

The young person has been charged and also will go through a youth justice process.


Anyone who sees anything suspicious happening in the community or has concerns for the immediate safety of themselves or others should call 111 straight away.

Police are committed to keeping people safe and hope the arrest will provide reassurance to the community.
