Police hunt men over armed robberies

Published: 11:13AM Friday February 22, 2013 Source: ONE News

Auckland police investigating three armed robberies last Sunday are looking for John Koteka, also recently using the name Paul Wilson.

Police say they have a warrant to arrest the 34-year-old in relation to the second of the three offences that occurred at the base of Mt Eden.

Koteka is a Pacific Islander of solid build and, although currently transient, has Auckland connections in the city and Papatoetoe.

Police believe he may be in the company of Alex Tereora, 31, who is also wanted on a warrant to arrest after he failed to appear on February 18 to face several charges including the use of a firearm and assault with intent to rob.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard says neither man should be approached by members of the public as both are considered to be armed and dangerous.

"It's nearly a week since the brazen and frightening offences occurred in the Domain and on Mt Eden and we're very keen to locate these men in order to prevent repeat offences."
