A female shop assistant held up at gunpoint in a Wellington dairy thumped the man with a broom handle as he left.

The man made off with cash after pointing a handgun at the woman in the Devyish Superette on Kilbirnie Crescent about 1.20pm on Friday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Warwick McKee says the man fired a shot toward the ceiling.

The female employee hit the offender on the head with a broom handle from the store as he fled.

The man was last seen running across Kilbirnie Park, between Kilbirnie Aquatic Centre and the Poneke Rugby clubrooms.

The offender is described as a male Caucasian, aged in his mid-twenties.

He is about 170cm in height and of slender build.

He was wearing black trousers and a long-sleeved black sweatshirt under a sleeveless orange glow jacket.
