A Rotorua bar was robbed this morning after a man forced his way into the premises.

Police said a female staff member at the Kiwi Spirit bar in Hinemoa Street was confronted by the man just before 8am after she heard a knock at the door.

The man forced his way into the bar and took a large sum of cash before leaving. It is not clear if he was on foot or had a vehicle.

He wore a dark top with a distinctive yellow fluorescent design on the back, dark trousers and black and white shoes or trainers.

The staff member was left shaken, but uninjured.
