Counties Manukau, 10 July 2014 - Counties Manukau Police are investigating an aggravated robbery that occurred on Saturday the 5th of July 2014.

At approximately 8:30pm four males entered the Ti Rakau Drive Thirsty Liquor. One male has picked up some alcohol and attempted to walk out of the store. This male has been confronted by the lone employee; another male from the group has suddenly attacked the employee, with all four males taking part in the assault.

The employee has been punched and kicked numerous times, before being struck on the head with a bottle of spirits with such force that the bottle has shattered.
