He was wanted after a knife-point robbery in Whangarei early on Thursday morning.

Two men have been arrested and charged over the alleged aggravated robbery just after midnight, Wednesday.

Police had intially surrounded an Otaika house, but switched focus to the stolen car being followed by the off-duty officer.
