Men armed with shotgun rob Auckland bar


Police are looking for two men who pointed a shotgun at a bar worker during an aggravated robbery in Point Chevalier on Wednesday morning.

The men entered the bar on Great North Road at 10:55am, baring a sawn off side-by-side double barrel shotgun and threatened staff before stealing cash.

They were last seen leaving in a silver Subaru Legacy, travelling westbound on Great North Road.

Shortly after, a stolen vehicle matching the description of the car used in the robbery was located on Kiwi Street, where it had been set on fire.

The bar staff were left shaken, but not injured.

Both offenders are described as Maori or Polynesian, 20-30 years old, around 5'7" tall and of solid build.

The man holding the firearm was wearing a black 'New Era' cap with a white or grey peak, and a grey sweatshirt with a large triangle on the back.

The other offender wore a distinctive black hoodie with 'The Game' logo on the front. This offender was carrying a chilly bag.
