New Zealand police are on a hunt for an Indian or Indonesian for molesting a woman at a bus station in Auckland, the media reported on Monday.

The police called for public assistance to identify a man who grabbed a young woman from behind, covered her mouth before indecently assaulting her at Sunnynook Bus Station - the smallest such in Auckland - on November 25, reported.

The police released CCTV pictures of a man who is dark-skinned, possibly of Indian or Indonesian origin, with black hair and a gap in his front teeth, the report said.

He was seen wearing a black t-shirt with yellow horizontal stripes, denim shorts, dark socks and boots.

He was also carrying a large dark bag, with long straps, that he wore on his shoulder.
