The offender walked into Dom- ino’s Pizza in Pakuranga’s Johns Lane at about 4.15pm last Sunday. He was filmed by the store’s security camera when threatening one of two employees on duty and demanding cash. Detective sergeant Tom Gollan, of Counties Manukau East Police’s criminal investigation branch, says the man entered the pizza fran- chise and pulled out a large span- ner from his pocket, presenting it at Domino’s staff. “He obtained a small amount of cash and left the store on foot,” Mr Gollan told the Times. “We want to hear from anyone who knows this man’s identity, or has information that will assist our investigation. “Someone is bound to know who this person is.” The wanted man is described as Caucasian and of slim build. He’s believed to be aged in his early 20s and is about 1.8-metres tall. He had on a baseball-style cap, blue jeans, a black and white cheq- uered shirt and red and black bas- ketball shoes. “Staff at the Domino’s Pizza were uninjured during this inci- dent, but they were a bit shocked,” says Mr Gollan. “A spanner isn’t your usual weapon, but it could still be used to strike someone.” Mr Gollan says when the man left the pizza shop he ran east along Johns Lane. The block of shops adjacent to Domino’s Pizza includes a dairy and real estate office and has been targeted by thieves before. One nearby business was broken into by criminals four times last year. On one occasion those responsi- ble cut phone lines to the building before trying to get inside. The shop’s owner, who asked not to be identified, wasn’t at work during the robbery at Domino’s Pizza, but arrived on the scene afterwards. His staff member who was work- ing at the time was asked by police if she had seen anyone suspicious in the area. “These sorts of things are very stressful,” the business owner says. “If something happens there is always fear. “I’ve had problems with insur- ance [as a result of break-ins] and it causes so much stress.” The hold-up at Domino’s Pizza last Sunday afternoon follows a series of robberies in the Pakuranga area allegedly committed by a man using a black pistol or knife. He robbed three businesses between last October and Decem- ber, including the Johns Lane pizza store targeted last weekend. On each occasion he wore a white mask over his face and a dis- tinctive black hooded top with a white logo on the front. People with information on the identity of the man who used a spanner to rob Domino’s Pizza in Johns Lane, Pakuranga, at about 4.15pm on July 14, can phone Mr Gollan on 215-9922, or the free and anonymous Crimestoppers tip-off line on 0800-555 -111. Spanner used in hold-up WANTED: Police are looking for the man in these security camera images after he allegedly robbed a Pakuranga pizza franchise.
