Police are appealing for witnesses following an aggravated robbery at a dairy on the corner of Heywood Street and Tanner Street, Grasmere, Invercargill. Two men entered the store around 6.20pm on Monday (27th May) evening.

Both men had their faces covered, one was of a slight build and the other of a solid build.

One of the men was wearing a black and red hoodie.

A similar vehicle was reported driving at excessive speeds shortly after the incident heading north on SH6 at Lorneville.

Police urge anyone who has information that may assist this investigation, or anyone who saw this vehicle in the area to call Police on (03) 217 1326.
