Hundreds seek protection for shop owners

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 30/04/2017

Several hundred people have marched in south Auckland to highlight the issue of aggravated robberies targeting small businesses.

The group marched down Great South Road, in Manukau on Sunday, with signs calling for better protection of shop workers and harsher penalties for criminals.

The group has set up a Facebook page called Crime Prevention Group.

A post on the page on Friday noted another broad daylight robbery at Dominos in Pakuranga, which left a worker shaken.

"This shop is very next door to Big Johns Dairy that was robbed in an aggravated robbery over the Easter weekend where the hardworking shop owner suffered injuries during the attack," it said.
