Appeal for witnesses in cricket bat robbery

A cricket bat-wielding dairy robber is being hunted by police in Christchurch.

The peroxide-blond man in his late teens or early 20s entered a dairy near Riccarton Racecourse about 8.25am yesterday carrying a cricket bat.

He took cash from the store owner before fleeing over fences between Racecourse Rd and Epsom Rd.

"It is fortunate that no one was hurt in the incident, but we want to make sure this offender is caught before it happens again," Detective Gary Absalom said as he appealed for witnesses.

Police say the offender is about 1.75m tall, of slim build, with short peroxide-blond hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top and black pants.
