Waitemata Police have arrested five people following the robbery of a shop in West Auckland this morning.

Police were called to a superette on Henderson Valley Rd just after 7.15am.

Five males, disguised with scarves and face masks, entered the premises brandishing batons and bars.

Four of the offenders took cigarettes and the till, with money in it.

A fifth offender allegedly pointed an imitation firearm at the shop owner, who was subsequently kicked in the face.

While the victim was injured, fortunately he did not require treatment by paramedics.

A speedy response from Police to the scene and a rapid investigation by the Tactical Crime Unit has resulted in the arrest of five people and the seizure of a vehicle.

This was a solid piece of Police work, which included a foot chase by officers.

The five males, one 18-year-old, three aged 17, and one 14-year-old, appeared in court this afternoon, where Police opposed bail.

Police will not tolerate this type of crime, which targets people providing a vital service to our communities.
