A man with a "distinctive accent" is being sought in Wellington after he allegedly grabbed and tried to kiss a woman in the CBD.
Police want the public's help to find the man, who was dressed in a maroon dress shirt and grey pants, in relation to the indecent assault.
They say a woman was walking along Lambton Quay toward the train station around 2:30pm on Monday when she was approached by the man.
He's described as Caucasian, in his 20s, around 177cm tall and of a skinny build. He has pale blue eyes and short brown hair.
Police believe the man could be frequenting the Wellington CBD.
Anyone who saw the man or knows who he is should call Constable Natana Collier-Repia on (04) 381 2000.
