A man armed with a hammer robbed an Auckland jeweller on Friday night.

Police say they were called just after 7pm to Pascoes at Sylvia Park mall in Mt Wellington.

The man got away in a vehicle. No one was hurt. It's not clear yet how much he managed to steal. 

Police are making enquiries.

A number of jewellery store robberies have been reported in Auckland lately, mostly Michael Hill outlets. A month ago two men stole a significant amount of jewellery, as well as a number of personal items such as bags in a brazen robbery of a store in west Auckland's West City mall

In November a Michael Hill in Pukekohe was hit, footage showing the thieves stumbling as they made their getaway.
