The Auckland man was arrested in Tauranga yesterday, and appeared in court today.

He's facing a charge of sexual violation and one of abducting a person with the intent to have sexual connection with her.

He was granted interim name suppression.

Judge Noel Cocurullo remanded the man in custody to reappear in the Auckland District Court next month.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and further charges may be laid.

They are still seeking a second man.
