Counties Manukau

Counties Manukau Police are investigating an aggravated robbery which occurred at the Counties Inn Liquor Outlet in Paerata Rd, Pukekohe.

At about 8pm on Monday 11 August two men entered the store, both of whom were armed. One man presented a pistol and the other man was armed with a knife.

“Both liquor and cash were stolen but thankfully the victim remained unharmed, although thoroughly shaken by the experience,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Rod Honan of Counties Manukau Police South CIB. “Both men left the store on foot heading north towards Seddon Street.”

The first offender is desribed as having dark skin and is wearing a blue hooded jacket or sweatshirt with a multi-coloured pattern on the front. He was brandishing a glock-style pistol.

The second offender, with the knife, is wearing black fingerless gloves, a grey hooded sweatshirt, dark trousers and black and white running shoes. He is also carrying a dark blue or black Puma sports bag (seen in the photo).

Police are interested in hearing from anyone who may recognise the people pictured in CCTV footage or who knows anything about this incident.

“The men may have had a vehicle parked in the area around Seddon Street which was used as their getaway car. We would like to hear from anyone who might have seen some suspicious activity in this area around 8pm on Monday night. Small pieces of information that may seem insignificant could be vital to the investigation,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Honan.

Contact Police on 09 295 0379 or information can be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
