Police are investigating after a group of males robbed Michael Hill Newmarket in a brazen smash-and-grab on Wednesday evening.

The store was still open when the group entered the store armed with baseball bats just after 6pm and began smashing glass counters in the store.

Police said that after taking a number of items, the group fled in a silver Mazda Atenza, which was found abandoned in Almorah Place a short time later.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has information which could help identify those responsible.

It comes after another Michael Hill store in Takapuna was raided in similar fashion. One person has been arrested for receiving stolen goods from that robbery.
