Two men are sought after a robbery of an jewellery shop in Auckland on Saturday afternoon.

Police say they entered the store on Mokoia Road in Birkenhead at about 3pm and threatened the female attendant and several customers with a firearm.

One of the men was grabbed by a member of the public and there was a short struggle, but he escaped into a waiting vehicle, a stolen car double-parked outside.
