A woman has been sexually assaulted after a night out in central Auckland.

The incident happened near Mills Lane, off Queen Street between 2am - 4am on Thursday after she had been drinking in a bar with friends.

Detective Sergeant Andy King says the attack took place in a secluded place, close to where "Good Samaritan" Austin Hemmings was killed last year.

Police conducted an examination of the scene as well as CCTV images.
