Police continue to search for a man after an armed holdup at a business on the Central Coast overnight.

About 10pm (Sunday 31 March 2019), two male employees were preparing to close a food business in Wyee Road at Wyee.

A man entered the store armed with a shortened firearm and threatened the men, demanding money.

The contents of three cash registers were handed over to the man, along with a quantity of cigarettes.

The man left the premises on a motorcycle making good his escape.

Officers from Lake Macquarie Police District were called and established a crime scene.

Investigators believe that a man described as wearing a crash helmet, long sleeved black hoodie, dark long pants, and black gloves may be able to assist with their inquiries into the matter.

The man carried a sports bag, shortened firearm and rode a motorcycle that is not further described.

Police have urged anyone with information about the armed robbery to come forward.
