Police seek help to identify this man.

Police are appealing for help to identify a man after an aggravated robbery at a Christchurch store on Sunday morning.

At around 10:55am a man entered the business on Normans Road armed with a weapon and stole cash, cigarettes and tobacco. No one was injured.

Police would like anyone with information to help their investigation to come forward.

“Police would like to identify the man pictured in the CCTV images attached in relation to this incident,” a spokesperson said.

“We are also interested in hearing from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the incident or seen anything suspicious.”

Police are also investigating whether there’s a link between Sunday’s robbery, an aggravated burglary at a Cashmere business on Saturday April 8 and an aggravated robbery at a store in St Martins on Saturday, March 25.

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact police by phoning 105 and quoting file number 230409/5290.

Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously by phoning Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
