5:16 pm on 25 August 2014

Police are calling on the public to help identify two men captured on CCTV cameras robbing a bar in north Auckland late last night.

They said the pair entered Fat Boys Tavern in Albany about midnight, threatening the manager at close-range with a sawn-off shotgun, demanding cash and taking off in a waiting vehicle.

Detective Scott Wilson said officers hoped someone would recognise the reasonably distinctive hooded-jacket worn by one of the offenders.
