Christchurch Police have arrested a man in connection with the aggravated robbery of the Sideline Bar in Richmond last Wednesday [7 November].

A 24-year old Christchurch man was arrested on Friday evening [9 November] and charged with aggravated robbery.

The man appeared in the Christchurch District Court on Saturday and was remanded in custody to reappear on Tuesday 13 November.

Police are still actively seeking to identify a second offender involved in the robbery and continue to ask for help from the public.

Detective Senior Sergeant Tony Hill says the offenders are believed to have left the scene at speed in a white coloured Subaru Impreza motor vehicle.

"Anyone who has seen a white coloured Subaru Impreza in the areas of Richmond, Shirley or Edgeware immediately after 11.30pm on Wednesday night is urged to contact Police as soon as possible," he says.

"We are also interested in hearing from retailers or members of the public who have seen anyone matching the descriptions of the offenders, and using large amounts of gold coins to make transactions."

The offenders were both described as being male Maori or Pacific Islanders aged in their mid 20s, approximately 180cm in height and wearing dark clothing with their faces covered.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective James Haigh on (03) 3739118, or Christchurch police on (03) 3637400. Alternatively, to provide information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
