Just an hour later, two men wearing ski masks and carrying a firearm entered the Clock Work Gold Bar in Tawa and stole a vehicle belonging to one of the staff members.
The vehicle was later located by police.
Police believe the events were linked due to items in the vehicle.
"In these incidents no person has been physically injured but it can be very traumatic for the victims," police said.
