Man sought over video store robbery

A distinctive looking Maori man with bright orange dyed hair is wanted by police in connection with a Christchurch video store robbery yesterday.

The Star Video store on Wairakei Road, in suburban Bryndwr, about 2.45pm.

A man came into the business and demanded money while threatening the staff member with an item concealed under his top, Detective Gary Absalom said.

He fled with an undisclosed sum of money.

The man was believed to be Maori in his mid to late 20s, of average build and with orange hair.

He was wearing a cap and 3/4-length shorts with white shoes.

Mr Absalom said the man might have been in the area before the robbery and urged anyone who saw him to contact police.
