Robber in restaurant
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.
Ms Bostock asks anyone who saw anything suspicious to contact Detective Dahya at Glen Innes CIB on 524 1920 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
