Source: New Zealand Police – Aggravated robbery featured on Police Ten 7 tonight

Thursday, 30 April 2015 – 2:03pm

Following an appeal in January 2015, Counties Manukau Police are once again asking for assistance from the public to help solve an aggravated robbery that occurred in November 2014.

At around 9:15pm on 10 November 2014, a man entered the Russell Road Liquor Shop in Manurewa and threatened staff with a machete.  He fled the store with cash.

A CCTV photo was distributed to the public in January via media and the Counties Manukau Police Facebook page, however Police have not received any information that has lead to the man’s identification.

“This photo clearly shows the man’s face and we believe someone out there will be able to identify him,” says Detective Matt Kay of Manurewa CIB.

“Help us catch this man who has terrified a shopkeeper with a dangerous weapon.  This behaviour should not be tolerated in our community and we need your help to find him as soon as possible.”

See more information on this case on tonight’s episode of Police Ten 7, 7:30pm on TV2.

Anyone who recognises this man or who has information about this incident is asked to contact Police on 09 261 1300.  To provide information anonymously contact the organisation Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.  File 141111/7318 refers.
