Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help to catch two men who bru­tally at­tacked two shop keep­ers. The men tried to buy al­co­hol from the Pt Che­va­lier Liquor Cen­tre on Great North Rd, at around 9.15pm on Septem­ber 21, but did not have ID. Avon­dale po­lice Con­sta­ble Dean Burger says the men came back a few min­utes later with a metal bar and mon­key wrench and al­legedly at­tacked two peo­ple who were work­ing in the shop. One of the vic­tims needed stitches in his head. Po­lice say the at­tack­ers were in their late teens and were ei­ther Maori or Poly­ne­sian. Af­ter the at­tack they are be­lieved to have got­ten away in a dark coloured hatch­back along Great North Rd. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should contact Con­sta­ble Dean Burger from Avon­dale CIB on 820 5737, or email dbz268@po­lice.govt.nz. Contact crime stop­pers on 0800 555 111 to re­port in­for­ma­tion anony­mously. Go to auck­land­c­i­ty­har­bour news.co.nz to see CCTV footage of the rob­bery.
