A robber has used the festive period to punch a shop manager and steal cash, police say.

The man allegedly entered the store on Mungavin Ave in Porirua at about 2pm on Christmas Eve and knocked the manager to the ground.

The manager suffered moderate injuries to his face, while the man made off with stolen cash, police say.

Police are appealing for help to find him and say he was wearing a red t-shirt, black jeans with a red bandana tucked into the waistline and has tattoos on his arms and curly hair.
