Police seek offender in Whakatane aggravated robbery

Police seek offender in Whakatane aggravated robbery


Monday, 12 February 2018 - 3:19pm

Eastern Bay of Plenty Police are investigating an aggravated robbery which occurred at the Gull Service Station on the corner of Domain Road and King Street, Whakatane in the early hours of Monday 12 February 2018.

One disguised man carrying a weapon entered the service station at approximately 12.40 a.m. The man threatened the forecourt attendant and robbed the service station of a yet to be determined amount of cash.

The man then fled the scene south down King Street and then on to Victoria Avenue. The forecourt attendant was shaken but not injured as a result of the robbery, the second of which he has experienced in recent months.

The offender has not been identified as yet and Police would like to hear from any residents in the area around the service station who may have seen something which could assist our enquiries.

“The offender was observed loitering in the area prior to the robbery, so we are asking any people in the area around the time of the robbery, who may have seen something, to get in touch," says Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Standen.

If you can help, please contact Whakatane Police on 07 308 5255. Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Under the original TPP deal, the Tufts team estimated, 5,000 jobs would have been lost across New Zealand. More>>
