A Rotorua dairy owner was hit with a piece of wood in an aggravated robbery this afternoon.

Two teenage men entered the Sunset Super Seven dairy on Jarmey Place this afternoon at 2.45pm. They confronted the dairy owner and struck him with the piece of wood before fleeing down Sunset Rd. 

The owner was not seriously injured and chased his attackers, assisted by several members of the public who saw the attack. The offenders ran into the Wrigley Rd area and then through and behind residential properties. 

One of the attackers was wearing a grey and maroon hoodie, a red bandanna on his face, black cap and had a black backpack on his back. The other was wearing a maroon hoodie, blue shorts, black bandanna and a black bag across his shoulder. 

Rotorua Police would like to hear from any other members of the public who witnessed what happened or saw the attackers.
