Police are searching for a man who appears to have ignored a teenager's cries for help as she was being raped in a flowerbed near a Parramatta church.

The 15-year-old girl was walking alone through Church Street Mall at Parramatta, in Sydney's west, shortly after 2am (AEST) on Sunday when she was approached by two strangers. Police have described them as being of African appearance.

Detective Superintendent Maria Rustja said the girl had been at a function with friends but had decided to meet up with another group of people. "She was walking back through Church Street Mall on her own, when she was approached by the two men," she told reporters on Tuesday.

"The males then pulled her into a garden bed, adjacent to St John's church, on Church Street Mall, where she was indecently assaulted."

The girl called out for help when a man walked past but he didn't respond, said Det Super Rustja. "While there is no legal obligation to render assistance, certainly there is a moral one," she said.
