Aggravated Robbery and Carjacking, Manurewa

Aggravated Robbery and Carjacking, Manurewa


Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 9:39am

Counties Manukau Police are investigating an aggravated robbery which occurred at approximately 11:10am on Monday 4 August. Two male offenders entered the Sports Bar on Great South Road, Manurewa near the Southmall shopping complex.

One of the men stood at the entrance holding a weapon and stopped patrons from leaving. The second offender went behind the bar area and stole the till.
Both offenders ran from the Sports Bar through Southmall and across the overbridge of the Manurewa Train Station.

“After they fled the shopping complex, the two offenders forced a member of the public to stop her car,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Ellwood. “There was a young child in the front seat and the two offenders got in the back. They then forced the driver to drive them to the intersection of Wordsworth Road and Weymouth Road, Manurewa.”

The men exited the vehicle and were last seen running across Weymouth Road towards Friedlanders Road, Manurewa.

“This is a particularly frightening experience for a member of the public who was inadvertently caught up in this crime,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Ellwood. “While the victim was very shaken by the experience, thankfully she was otherwise unharmed.”

Of note, one of the offenders is wearing a black hoody with the words “West is Best” in white writing.

Police are appealing for information about the people involved in the aggravated robbery or to anyone who saw the two offenders running through Southmall, the Manurewa Train Station area, or near the intersection of Weymouth Road and Friedlanders Road, Manurewa.

“We ask that anyone who knows these people or who might have seen a discarded till to please contact Police as soon as possible,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Ellwood. “Information from the public will be essential in tracking these offenders down and we would like to hear from anyone who has any information, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem."

Please contact Detective Logan Pene of the Manurewa CIB on 09 213 9167 or to provide information anonymously please can contact the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Gordon Campbell: On The Tokenism Of New Zealand's Role Against Islamic State

To date, the Opposition has continued to occupy itself with the marginalia of the issue. E.g. whether Key did or didn’t know whether Barack Obama would be present at the US briefing last week on IS, or whether New Zealand’s military involvement is or isn’t already a fait accompli.

It might be better to tackle the issue, head on. Our contribution against IS will be to send SAS forces to train the Iraqis? That’s like offering trainers to General Custer just as the 7th cavalry reached the Little Big Horn.
