Police are appealing for information after a 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in Wellington.

Police say the attack happened about 8pm on Sunday night in the suburb of Miramar, after the girl got off a bus at the intersection of Park Road and Miramar Avenue.

She noticed a thin man in black clothing, including a top with a hood, across the road near the shops.

As she walked, a second man wearing white clothing walked past her.

The girl entered a walkway and was seriously assaulted by the first man in black, police said. He hasn't been found.

Police say the second man is considered a witness, and anyone with information should contact them.
