Police are investigating an overnight car-jacking at gunpoint in Mangere.

Police say two women were in a car in the McDonald's car park on Bader Drive about 2.30am on Wednesday when a man with a pistol asked them to hand over their keys.

He was last seen driving the blue Honda CRV, registration BCA372, on to Mascot Avenue with the lights off.

He is described as a slim Pacific Islander, aged about 20, with a shaky, quiet voice.

Police say it is thought the pistol may have been plastic.
