Police in Perth are searching for a robber with a Kiwi accent who held up two pizza shops in the city's southern southern suburbs last night.

The man, described as being 170cm tall, of solid build and with a New Zealand accent, held up a Dominos Pizza store in Willetton about 8.45pm local time, news.com.au reported.

The man, clad all in black, threatened staff with a knife and was handed some money before fleeing on a store on a motorbike, the website said.

Minutes later he held up an Eagle Boys pizza shop in Cockburn Central but left empty-handed when staff could not open the till.
