Police investigating the aggravated robbery of a German tourist in central Christchurch last Saturday wants to speak to four young people, who may have information about the attack.

Investigators have released security camera images of the group, taken at the Bus Exchange on Lichfield Street close to the time of the incident, which occurred at about 1.25am on Saturday.

Detective Sergeant Joel Syme said the group of two males and two females had not necessarily been involved in the attack.

They were of interest because they were at the Bus Exchange before and after the robbery.

"We are keen to speak to them as they may have seen something, or may have information that can help us identify the offenders.

The German tourist was attacked by three males.

How do you feel about the city's first anchor project, the Avon River Precinct?

Fantastic. It will transform the city

Ambivalent. The city needs more than a river precinct to recover

Not impressed. The design narrows the river
