Wellington, Jan 25 NZPA - A man escaped with cash after robbing a Post Shop on the main street of Waipukurau in Central Hawke's Bay this morning.

Police said the man entered the shop at 9.27am and demanded money from staff before walking back out and disappearing.

Detective Constable Lisa Tod, from the Hastings CIB, said the man had oil or soot on his face and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with yellow and white flames down the side and carrying a black and silver back-pack.

The sweatshirt was later found on State Highway 1 near Otane, several kilometres north of the town.

Anyone who may have seen the man was urged to contact police.
