Police are looking for a man with dyed orange hair, after a video store in Wairakei Rd was robbed yesterday afternoon. 

They said the "distinctive-looking male" with orange/peroxide coloured hair entered the Star Video Store at about 2.45pm on Saturday. 

He demanded money while threatening the staff member with an item concealed under his top. He fled with an undisclosed sum of money.

The male is believed to be Maori in his mid to late 20's of average build.

He was wearing a cap and 3/4 length shorts with white shoes. He may have been in the area prior to the incident.

Anyone with sightings of this person in that area or with information on his identity are asked to call Detective Gary Absalom on phone 363 7648. Or alternatively, call Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
