Police are appealing for information following an aggravated robbery that took place in Hornby yesterday morning.

Around 7:30am, two men allegedly entered a dairy on the corner of Springs Road and Amyes Road, threatened and assaulted a staff member and left with stolen cigarettes.

Police initially told Chris Lynch it was a “break in and nothing was stolen.”

Police said the victim is fortunately not seriously injured but is understandably shaken by this incident.

Anyone who was travelling in the area or saw two men dressed in black leaving the scene on foot are urged to contact Police with that information.

Police understand the offenders got into a black Audi A3 parked on Amyes Road and drove away.

Police are determined to hold these men to account and will not tolerate this type of offending in Christchurch.

If you have information that can assist Police in their enquiries into this incident contact 105 and quote 220613/4102.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
