Wit­nesses to an armed rob­bery at a Ja­panese restau­rant are be­ing sought by po­lice.

At about 11pm last Thurs­day a woman work­ing in the restau­rant on Manukau Rd in Epsom was con­fronted by a man with a pis­tol.

Af­ter tak­ing the woman’s bag the man was con­fronted by an­other em­ployee whom he also pointed the gun at be­fore leav­ing through the back of the restau­rant, Glen Innes po­lice De­tec­tive Sergeant Kathy Bo­s­tock says.

Two chefs then chased the man be­fore he got into a sil­ver sta­tion wagon where an­other man was wait­ing.
