A brazen robber entered a sports bar with a firearm, holding up the bar's employees and taking cash - all just metres away from the Glenfield police station.
The masked man entered the Postman's Leg sports bar on Downing St in Glenfield about 9pm this evening and demanded money, a police spokeswoman said.
"He then fled in a vehicle, taking off with a sum of cash."
The man was tall, in a grey sweatshirt and dark trousers and was wearing a white mask.
"No one was harmed, and those involved are receiving support," she said. "Inquiries are ongoing."
Police are still at the scene. Anyone who saw the man or his getaway vehicle is asked to contact North Shore Police on 09 477 5004.
