Police are on the hunt for two people following an armed robbery at a TAB in the Auckland suburb of Mount Albert.

Inspector Kerry Watson said two offenders entered the Mount Albert TAB on New North Road, near Carrington Road, around 6pm.

The pair had a gun and took 'a number of items' before fleeing in a light-coloured, four-door sedan, he said.

Inspector Watson said that as they were leaving, the rear window of the vehicle was smashed by a member of the public.

Police would like to hear from anyone who saw the vehicle, which left down New North Road towards the city.

Police patrols have been increased in the area as officers work to apprehend the pair.
