Masked robber targets Christchurch dairies

3:47 pm on 9 May 2015

A Christchurch dairy has been targeted by a masked robber for the second time in nearly a month.

Both robberies were at the Union Street Dairy in New Brighton.

In the latest robbery, police said a man wearing a joker mask demanded money from the dairy just before 7pm on Wednesday, but fled on foot empty-handed.

The other robbery was last month, where a man wearing a cartoon mask and a fluoro orange sweatshirt took money.

The police said they weren't sure whether both robberies are linked, but were appealing for information from the public.
