A Wellington nightclub worker says he reported one of the individuals at the centre of a raft of sexual assault allegations to the police three months ago.

A police investigation has been launched after multiple accusations of rape, sexual assaults and predatory behaviour by a group of musicians, surfaced on social media.

It comes amid revelations the capital's entertainment district has the highest rate of assaults and sexual assaults in the country.
