Police are hunting for a man who allegedly pointed a firearm at officers carrying out a bail check in Manurewa.

Ricky Batalliard, 27, confronted two male police officers at about 11am on Friday, police say.

The officers got out of the situation unharmed and Batalliard fled before police backup arrived.

Batalliard is 185cm tall, is of a solid build and has distinctive tattoos on his face.

The vehicle he left the scene in was a stolen silver Hyundai iX35 station wagon with the registration HLY442, police said.

Police are seeking information from the public but say Batalliard should not be approached.
