The police in Hamilton believe a man who assaulted a woman on her way to work yesterday was wearing high-visibility orange overalls.

They say the woman was assaulted on Hood Street about 6am yesterday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Patterson said the police were reviewing CCTV footage, and had yet to formally interview the woman.

He said they wanted to hear from anyone who either witnessed the attack or saw someone in the Hood Street area early yesterday wearing high-visibility overalls.
