Liquor store worker: 'I don't want to die'

A Rotorua liquor store has beefed up its security after a man threatened staff and swung a hammer at its manager, who feared he would die before seeing his unborn child.

The incident happened at Liquor Spot on Brookland Rd last November and a copy of Judge Phillip Cooper’s sentencing notes and summary of facts was released yesterday to the Rotorua Daily Post.

Tamati Rewi Taukamo, 24, was sentenced to seven months’ imprisonment after admitting charges of possessing an offensive weapon, behaving threateningly and assault, as well as a charge of disorderly behaviour in relation to a separate incident.

The summary states Taukamo tried to steal two cans of Codys, was confronted by manager Nobin Jose and another staff member and left the store.
