Armed robbery at Grey Lynn Post Shop

A gun-wielding man demanded cash from staff at a post shop in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn this morning.

He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the Grey Lynn Post Shop KiwiBank in Great North Road, at 10.12am.

The man, described as Maori, was about 175-180cm tall, of thin build, and had a dark complexion. He was wearing a khaki-coloured hooded top, long pants and a blue and white bandana across his face.

Cash was put into a black satchel he provided before he walked out the front doors.

Anyone with information should contact police.
