He was not injured but was left badly shaken.
Police described the attacker as being of stocky build, wearing a camouflage jacket and mask, and said he made off in a silver coloured car towards city centre.
A silver coloured Volkswagen car which police believe was involved in the robbery has been found in the Florida Street area.
