A knife-wielding man threatened staff at peak time at a Christchurch supermarket before driving off with a box of beers.
The man entered SuperValue on Wairakei Rd, between Greers Rd and Springbank St, about 6.15pm on Thursday, a police spokeswoman said.
He pulled out a knife and threatened the shop assistant before grabbing the alcohol and leaving in a vehicle.
