Police are appealing for information following the aggravated robbery of a Christchurch liquor store.

A man entered the Sockburn Bottle-O at 9pm last Sunday with knife, demanding cash and cigarettes.

He was wearing a black hoodie with 'Oakland Raiders' on the front, and black pants.

The offender left on foot.

Anyone who may have seen the incident are being urged to come forward, and call police on 105 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

It comes a few weeks after three men - one armed with a hammer - robbed a liquor store in Linwood, on the other side of the city.
