NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/12/2016

A man holding a short machete-style knife has held up a Night and Day dairy near Nelson.

The man entered the dairy in Stoke about 10.26pm on Sunday and demanded money from the female employee.

He then made off with the cash and was last seen riding a bicycle through Strawbridge Square, then north along Neale Avenue.

The shop employee was shaken but not harmed.

The male is described as Maori or Polynesian with a slim build, who is about 179cm tall and in his mid-teens to early 20s.

He was wearing a dark blue, sleeveless hoody, with a silver/grey coloured design on the back, a long sleeve black top, dark tracksuit pants and a green bandana covering his face.

He was carrying a small dark coloured backpack and was holding a black handled, short, machete-style knife with electrical tape wrapped around the handle.
