The police in Christchurch are appealing for witnesses to what they call the cowardly robbery of a woman in a wheelchair.

Police released CCTV footage of two teenage boys they wanted to speak to in relation to the incident at 12.40pm yesterday outside Henry's liquor store in Harewood Road, at Bishopdale Mall.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident or recognises the two teenagers in the CCTV image," Acting Inspector Ash Tabb said.

"This is a traumatic incident targeting a vulnerable victim."
