Police in Counties Manukau are investigating an aggravated robbery of a liquor store in Botany.

At about 7:20PM on Sunday 6th September two males, one armed with a concealed machete, entered the Mirrabooka Liquor store on Botany Road where the victim was working behind the counter.

One of the males was wearing sunglasses and a mask, and when the victim grew suspicious, he asked him to remove the face covering. The second male then pulled out the machete and threatened the victim to open the cash register.

The males proceeded to steal alcohol, cigarettes and the cash from the till before they exited the store on foot and turned left onto Mirrabooka Avenue.
