A Wellington teenager has been sexually assaulted after she got off a bus.
The 15-year-old hopped off a bus in Miramar on Sunday evening carrying a backpack and a bag of shopping when she noticed a thin man in black clothing across the road near the shops.
As she entered a walkway, the man seriously assaulted her, police say.
A second man wearing white clothing walking down Miramar Ave before the assault is believed to have seen the girl and her attacker and is being urged by police to come forward.
Anyone else who witnessed the incident should call police.
