Police are calling for the public's help to find a fugitive following an armed robbery.
Jackson Manson is wanted in relation to the aggravated robbery of the Sideline Sports Bar in Stanmore Rd last month.
The robbery took place just after 11pm on Wednesday November 7, when two males who were disguised and armed with firearms, demanded money from staff.
Bar owner Terry McIntyre told The Press the two robbers were in the bar for only a few minutes and it was not known how much cash they had stolen.
Detective Tim Cummins said Manson is known to be actively avoiding police.
Although police are not aware of any specific threat, Manson should not be approached and anybody seeing him should call 111 and notify police immediately, Cummins said.
Manson is a 22-year-old Maori of thin build.
Anyone with information call Detective Tim Cummins on 3739160, police on 3637400, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
