Attempted aggravated robberies

Attempted aggravated robberies

Dunedin Police are looking for the public's help in identifying two males who attempted two seperate aggravated robberies overnight.

In the first attempt, the two males were seen loitering around the car wash facility at Mobil on Forbury Corner just before midnight on Saturday, 12 September 2015.

The two males have been wearing items of clothing over their faces and entered the service station.

They have then been confronted by the staff members present and fled the area.

Around 30 minutes later, at about 12.30am on Sunday, 13 September 2015, the two males have attempted another aggravated robbery at the Lookout Point Dairy on the corner of Riselaw Toad and Columba Ave.

This time, the two offenders have presented an axe to staff, however they were fended off and locked out before again fleeing the scene.

No property was stolen in either of the attempted aggravated robberies and none of the staff members were hurt, but police need to identify the two offenders before they try this again.

If you recognise either of the males, some of the distinctive clothing they are wearing, the black carry bag with the silver fern and words New Zealand on the side, or if you saw anything suscipious around these locations at the times above, Police urge you to call the Dunedin Central Police Station on 03 471 4800.

Alternatively, information acan be provided anonymously via the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
