Police are asking for help to identify someone who robbed a petrol station in Whakatāne with a knife.
A person entered Caltex Whakatane on Commerce St holding a knife at around 1am on Saturday November 20, detective senior sergeant Paul Wilson said in a statement.
The person jumped over the counter and demanded cigarettes and cash, threatening the only attendant working.
A scuffle broke out, and the staff member sustained a small cut to his finger.
“As part of our inquiries we are looking to identify the person pictured, who wore a grey face mask with a teeth design printed on it, and a distinctive puffer hoodie,” Wilson said.
Wilson said officers were confident someone in the community could identify this person.
