A Hastings dairy owner was struck on the head when he disturbed three men robbing his store early this morning.

The man is undergoing surgery at Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital after he suffered a number of cuts to the head and arm when someone hit him with a sharp object, Detective sergeant Craig Vining said.

An alarm alerted the owner of Lantern Light Dairy, that people were in his shop on the corner of Willowpark Rd North and Grove Rd about 1.55am.

He found two men in black clothing in the store.

A third man struck the owner, Vining said.

The trio were last seen on Willowpark Rd North heading towards Jervois St.

Vining asked that anyone with information about  the burglary contact the Hastings police on 06 831 0700.
