A man in a shark costume is wanted by police in New Zealand after he stole from a petrol station.

Canterbury Police have shared a photo of the man, who went into a BP petrol station in the early hours of Sunday morning, UPI said.

He was also accompanied by another man, however he was not dressed up.

They were armed with a hammer and a knife. Police said: "They have smashed a glass shelf which startled the attendant, who retreated to the staff room, where another colleague was having their break."

However the only thing they stole was an "unknown amount of confectionery."

Authorities are now appealing for information about the two men, and asking witnesses to come forward.
