An Auckland jewellery store has been attacked by a pair of hammer-wielding marauders this afternoon.

Inspector Rod Carpinter said police were responding to an incident at a jewellery store at Onehunga Mall in Onehunga.

“At around 4.11pm, we received a report that two people carrying hammers had entered the store and began smashing cabinets,” he said.

“They have then fled the store. At this stage it is unknown what might have been taken.”

Carpinter said no injuries had been reported by any staff member or customers. “However, they are understandably shaken, and police are providing support.”

The inspector said enquiries were now in the early stages to determine what has occurred and who was responsible.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact police.
