Police in Porirua are investigating an assault on two 15-year-old girls near the railway station.

The incident took place about 5.30pm on Sunday when the girls were approached by a boy and asked for money.

The boy, whom police describe as 13 or 14 years old, then grabbed one of the girls and asked her to kiss him, before licking her face and biting her on the neck.

Police say he followed them to a nearby supermarket before running away when the girls began to scream.

The boy is described as Maori or Polynesian, with short black hair and a lot of freckles.
