Christchurch petrol station robbed by bloke in shark onesie

A bloke dressed in a blue and white shark onesie was one of two people who held up a petrol station near Christchurch overnight.

It seems jaws has a bit of a sweet tooth with the pair making off with a haul of lollies at around 2:20am, after threatening BP Rolleston staff.

Police were unable to track down the pair on Sunday night, but the hunt will continue today.
