Two armed robberies in Waikato overnight

  • 12/09/2016

It has been a busy night for Waikato police who were called to investigate two armed robberies.

In the first case, two masked offenders pointed a pistol at a staff member at the Cock and Bull pub in Hamilton just after midnight on Monday morning, but they left with nothing.

The second incident happened only a few minutes later in Ngaruawahia at a BP petrol station, where a man threatened the attendant with a knife before making off with a small amount of money and cigarettes.

Police investigations are ongoing.
