Two men attempt Rotorua liquor store robbery

2:21 pm on 6 June 2016

Two men, one carrying a hammer, have tried to rob a Rotorua liquor store.

The men entered the Mitchell Downs Liquor Store on Goldie Street about midday on Saturday and demanded money.

Police said the men fled with nothing after one staff member armed themselves with a stool from behind the counter and another with a hockey stick.

The pair left in a stolen car, which has since been found.
