Police appeal for witnesses following aggravated robbery in Northcote


Christchurch Police have carried out a scene examination at a Tuckers Road address in Northcote today following an aggravated robbery of three people at approximately 9.30 pm yesterday (19 January 2016).

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Cottam said Police and Victim Support are working with the victims and supporting them. “This is a very traumatic event and this sort of offending is unacceptable.”

The men were described as Maori or Polynesian, approximately 30 years old and wearing black clothing. One has been described as 5'2" and large build, while the other was described as 5'10", solid build and bald.

If you were in the area or know who was responsible for this incident please contact the Metro Crime Team at Christchurch Central Police Station on 03 363 7400.
