Hawke’s Bay, August 12, 2018
A 17-year-old Napier youth will appear in the Hastings District Court next week facing a charge of aggravated robbery.
This follows an incident at the Z Petrol Station Kennedy Road, Napier.
Detective Sergeant Darren Pritchard of Hawke’s Bay Police said that at 6 am yesterday morning (Saturday), three armed offenders entered the store and demanded property from the attendant.
“The three offenders then left with a small amount of property. The attendant was left shaken from this incident and was given Victim Support assistance, but they were thankfully not injured,” he said.
It is however a pleasing result to locate one of those responsible, Mr Pritchard said.
“A black ‘Nike’ sports bag containing items of interest is believed to have been dumped somewhere between the Petrol station and the suburb of Marewa,” he said.
Police are asking for residents in this area to come forward if they have located this bag or have any information relating to the robbery.
