Hamilton Police investigate aggravated dairy robbery

Hamilton Police are investigating the aggravated robbery of Emm Jay Dairy, on the corner of Brookfield and Grey Streets, this morning.

The robbery took place at around 8.30am, when two masked males entered the dairy armed with an axe and a machete.

They approached the lone shopkeeper, striking him on the head and hands with the machete.

They then stole cigarettes and cash from the store before leaving, heading south in a stolen silver Mazda Familia, registration FEP218.

As a result of the attack, the victim suffered significant wounds to his head and hands and was transported to Waikato Hospital for medical assistance.
It has since been confirmed that he has a fractured skull.

Police would like to hear from anyone who was in the area of the dairy at the time of the robbery who may have seen the car described above, or witnessed the offenders entering or leaving the store.

If you have any information which could assist with our investigation, or if you are able to help us identify the people in the attached pictures, please call Detective Sergeant Scott Neilson on 07 858 6200.
Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
