Two in Youth Court following Wainuiomata robbery

"Two in Youth Court following Wainuiomata robbery"

Two young people are due to appear in Hutt Valley Youth Court today following an aggravated robbery in Wainuiomata last night.

Police were called to a dairy on Ruthven Road about 5:30pm on May 16 to a report of two people - one with a hockey stick - entering the store and assaulting the attendant.

The female attendant required hospital treatment for facial injuries.

The pair fled on foot with the cash register, before being tracked by attending Police with assistance from members of the public.

Detective Senior Sergeant Martin Todd says it's pleasing to have made such a quick arrest.

"This would have been a traumatic event for our victim, and we are pleased to have been able to hold those responsible to account.

Offending such as this is not acceptable in our community.

"We would also like to thank those members of the public who assisted Police at the scene."

Police are not seeking anyone else in relation to the robbery, however are appealing for witnesses to the incident, or to anyone who has seen a cash register in the Ruthven Road area, to contact Police.

Call Wellington CIB Crime Squad on (04) 381 2077, or information can be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously if necessary, on 0800 555 111.

Brexit is not the only concern... More>>
