At about 2:55pm on Tuesday 10th December 2019 two males entered the Mt Richmond Park Superette in Otahuhu, one armed with a firearm.

The male armed with a firearm chased a customer out on his way into the shop, he then went into the back of the shop, where the security gate had been left ajar. One of the males ran straight to the till but couldn’t open it, so joined his partner in loading up a bag of cigarettes.

The victim was in a backroom and could see them on the live CCTV feed. He spooked them and activated the panic alarm, which activated the fog cannon, which prompted the males to run off

The first suspect was described as:

  • Male
  • Approx 184cm | 6ft
  • Wearing a black hoodie with a high-viz garment tied around waist, black cap with a white New York monogram, dark grey tracksuit pants, black DC brand shoes, a glove on his right hand, carrying a black bag
  • Holding a black pistol style firearm

The second suspect was described as:

  • Male
  • Approx 176cm | 5’9”
  • Wearing a black and yellow vertically striped Phoenix football-style hoodie, grey tracksuit pants, black Nike shoes with white soles, with an O’Neal Jump Crank or dirt bike motorbike-style glove on his left hand

Police still need to identify the customer who was chased from the shop, and ask anyone who knows who he is to get in contact.

Police are confident somebody in the Otahuhu community will recognise the two men and also ask anyone who knows someone with cigarettes they shouldn’t have had in the days following the robbery to get in contact.
